Selected vineyard sites across Marlborough, including Leefield Station, The Slopes & Fairleigh Estate vineyards.
Rich aromas of ripe peach, apricot and grapefruit are intertwined with a nutty, spicy oak character. The lush palate invokes stone fruit flavors supported with an opulent texture derived from barrel componentry. The wine finishes deliciously dry with bright citrus acicity.
We recommend imbibing this wine with something special.
