Pale lemon in colour. The bouquet shows soft but meaningful citrus, lime peel, grilled pineapple, creamy richness. Currant and berry leaves and an edge of minerality. The palate is tropical, assertive and shows vibrant acidity. Fruit - (gooseberry and citrus), quickly turns to a savoury core, with young, zingy nettle, asparagus and sugar snap peas, that show focused power. Dry, with great texture. Depth, layering and intriguing on the finish.

Taking fruit from some of the nest vineyard sites in New Zealand and vinifying them in a manner that respects the quality of the terroir. A focussed wine style that appeals to true enthusiasts looking for an alternative, yet still recognisable, expression of Marlborough and Central Otago. Created by Master of Wine, Liam Steevenson and Ben Glover, the man who made Mud House the powerhouse it is today, this brand has been built around the importance of finding exceptional vineyards that highlight the intrinsic qualities and diverse nature of Sauvignon Blanc & Pinot Noir. Patience in the vineyard is echoed inside the cellar, resulting in wines that reflect place rather than pure fruit character.
