Ripe berries and black cherries on the nose which transfer onto the palate with a hint of oak.
Finely balanced, fruit forward styled wine.
An intense nose showing floral aromatics, black cherries, plum and a touch of spice from the barrels providing a beautifully integrated wine.
The front palate is layered with dark fruits, oriental spice and complex savoury flavours which support the fine grained tannins. The intensity of the front palate cascades into a lingering seamless finish.
This is an intensely rich wine that will cellar until at least 2020.
Tropical fruits along with the cool climate attributes of Central Otago combine to make a truly amazing Chardonnay that could rival anything else in the world. It is a flinty elegant wine with good structure and balance. Barrel fermented in French oak.
Aromatically there are orange blossoms, honeysuckle and jasmine. On the palate it's a real citrus fiesta with sweet lemon, limes and mandarins. There is also an element of minerality about the wine with subtle notes of stone fruit and almonds. The sugar acid balance is described as 'off dry' and the finish is clean making this a good aperitif and food wine.
A very aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. The wine has strong fragrances of lychee, gooseberry and passion-fruit.
Initially textural on entry, in the mouth the wine leads into a broad wide acidity with flavours of gooseberry flowing through onto the finish.
Complex, rich and elegant Pinot Noir tasting of intense ripe cherries, spice and liquorice. Plenty
of richness on the palate and length on the finish.
