Notes

2021 Harvest was another high quality but tough vintage for the Nelson region. Starting with a cool spring and late, dry summer volumes were down overall by 35%. On the upside, the quality of fruit is superb, perfect for making sensational wine. Aromas of fresh white peach, light cream toffee, layered with notes of vanilla and nutmeg. The palate is filled with vibrant fruit and oak, a nicely integrated wine.

Food Pairing

Best enjoyed with poached salmon, slow cooked pork or a crisp Caesar Salad

Reviews & Awards

5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2022

By Sam Kim

Richly fruited and generously expressed, the wine shows yellow peach, vanillin oak, brioche and butterscotch characters on the nose, followed by a plush palate that's ripe and creamy. Opulent and flavoursome with a lengthy velvety finish. At its best: now to 2025

Rating: 93/100
Premium - Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier 2022

By Cameron Douglas

A smooth elegant bouquet with scents of vanilla and peach, custard cream and baked apple. A pristine, clean and refreshing wine on the palate with orchard fruits and baking spices that reflect the bouquet. The acid line ensures this wine will age as well as carries fruit flavours and delivers a delicious and refreshing mouthfeel. Soft creamy textures encapsulate this wine with a balanced even finish. Best drinking from 2022 through 2026.
