Harvest 2022 threw just about everything at us to challenge even the most seasoned grower. From a cool, damp flowering period, beautiful hot January followed by super wet February, huge disease pressure all round, etc. Fortunately from the beginning of March onwards, the fine weather returned and stayed. While yields were down on average, the fruit that was harvested was in the main very good and we’re looking forward to some great wine. Fruit sourced from a single vineyard in Upper Moutere. 100% fermentation in older French oak for over 10 months. Aromas of white peach, apple and cream with mild spicy vanilla notes, distinctive of the French oak influence. The palate is fruit driven, full and creamy with a silky texture and a generous warming mouth feel.
Perfect with rich seafood, pork or poultry dishes.
Ready now through to 2030
Reviews & Awards
Premium - Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier 2023
By Cameron Douglas MS
Aromas and flavours of peaches and apples with a fresh cheesy-cream quality. Vanilla and some nut qualities layer into a light smooth satin mouthfeel. Plenty of acidity to carry the flavours adding a crisp edge to the palate textures. A medium+ weighted wine with balance and flavours. Best drinking from 2023 through 2026.
5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2023
By Sam Kim
Upfront and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows golden peach, pineapple, cedar and lemon peel aromas, followed by a supple palate delivering succulent fruit flavours with velvety mouthfeel. Well balanced by juicy acidity, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2027.
