A lively Chardonnay with citrus aromas hinting at mature lime and grapefruit.
The palate is driven by a beautiful fresh acidity and delivers a texture driven very persistent finish.
A bouquet reminiscent of cherry, rhubarb and dry herbs.
Medium weight, the palate texture is silky, while the flavours are complex and memorable.
A beautifully structured Central Otago pinot noir.
On the palate it is a full bodied pinot noir, with flavours of black cherries, berry fruits and anise.
The fruit weight is complemented by fine, silky tannins, providing length and persistence to the palate.
Orange wine from Central Otago, New Zealand. Made from Pinot Gris.

Bright and deep ruby. A concentrated perfume of cassis, licorice and strawberry sorbet grows deeper with coastal scents of dried shells and crayfish bisque. Earthy notes of ironstone rock give way to dried rose petal and vanilla butter intrigue. A fresh and succulent entry with incredible length and firm driving, linear tannins. Fresh raspberry, wood spice, vanilla and peanut complexities linger on the finish. An intense, tight, lengthy and exciting wine.
Bright ruby with a purple tinge. Very fragrant brimming with red berries, dried Goji fruit and crisp, crusty blackberry pie. Savoury nuances of mulled wine spices, green peppercorn, dried blood orange peel and BBQ char, round out the enticing and seductive bouquet. Vibrant cherry, plum and raspberry fruit fill the palate effortlessly, with soft and pleasant tannins, lending textural support. Balanced acidity brings freshness and vibrancy, drawing out a fleshy length of flavour.
