A fragrantly composed wine exuding delicate aromas of apple blossom, the lusciousness of sweet rock melon and the headiness of lemon sherbet. The palate delivers a burst of lime sorbet and a suggestion of flinty minerality, which combined within its Yin-Yang structure of delicate sweetness and vibrant acidity produces a wine of sumptuous vivacity.


The fruit for this wine was grown at Ashmore Vineyard in Fairhall, adjacent to the mouth of the Brancott Valley on gravelly clay-loam soils, conditions more typical of the Southern Valleys than the Wairau plains. This 15-year-old, organically farmed vineyard is trained on a two-cane VSP (vertical shoot positioning) trellis.


The fruit was hand-picked at moderate ripeness levels to capture the exuberance and natural acidity of the variety. The grapes were whole bunch pressed using a very low maceration press cycle and the resulting juice was cold-settled, then racked to fermentation vessels. Half of the juice was inoculated in a stainless steel tank using cultured yeast and the balance was filled into old French oak barriques where it was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation. Towards the end of fermentation all the wine was transferred to a stainless steel tank where the fermentation was stopped, retaining 22 g/l residual sugar. The blended wine was then filled into old barrels where it remained on yeast lees for a further five months, prior to bottling in December with an alcohol of 12.0%, pH 2.90 and acidity of 8.1 g/l.
