This single vineyard wine is a unique expression of our high altitude site in the upper reaches of Marlborough's Awatere Valley. A bright, luminous pale golden green in the glass, it displays aromas of passionfruit, fresh citrus, and currant-leaf on the nose. The concentrated palate is layered with sweet tropical fruit, herbal notes and a touch of zesty minerality - leading to a pure and focused dry finish.This single vineyard wine is a unique expression of our high altitude site in the upper reaches of Marlborough's Awatere Valley.

Wine EnthusiastDrawn from the cooler Awatere Valley subregion, this is pungent and green. Leafy notes and hints of green tomato accent passion fruit flavors in this medium-bodied wine that finishes crisp and refreshing.
