Musk melon, lime and minerality dominate the nose. The palate is fresh and juicy with luscious pear and kiwifruit on the mid-palate. A well balanced, medium weight wine.

|The fruit of our two Marlborough vineyards were blended to produce this rich and flavoursome wine: Cowslip Valley (Waihopai), providing full, soft and luscious fruit weight, and Wakefield Downs (Awatere), bringing strength and focus.
The grapes are crushed, pressed and fermented in stainless steel at controlled cool temperatures.
