Tasting notes - Juicy red fruit aromas dominate with notes of sun-ripened strawberry, raspberry bramble accompanied by subtle hints of wild thyme. On the palate, concentrated flavours of fresh raspberries and ripe red cherry are enveloped in silky tannins with a touch of cardamom spice on the finish.

The fruit was sourced from a number of specifically selected low cropping vineyards from the Southern Valleys region of Marlborough. Leading up to the harvest, each vineyard was closely monitored and the grapes were tasted to determine when the flavours were at their optimum. Harvesting took place during the cool of the morning to retain the freshness and vibrancy of flavour in the berries.

Each parcel of fruit was cool macerated for five days to help achieve flavour and colour extraction. Selected yeasts were used for fermentation and the wine was hand plunged at the height of fermentation. It was then gently pressed and racked off the gross lees to either stainless steel tanks or a combination of new and older seasoned French oak, where 100% underwent malolactic fermentation before being blended, fined, lightly filtered and gently prepared for bottling.
