    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is a blend of fruit from three of our vineyards with varying soil characteristics. Fruit sourced from the Estate vineyard on the upper terraces encompassed five parcels of varied Waimakiriri soils types of alluvial origin with free-draining basalt pebbles. This was supplemented by portions from the Tatou and Raupo vineyards, where the soils are a mixture of alluvial shingles and slightly higher clay contents.

    The slightly cooler growing conditions encountered during the 2003 vintage allowed us to pick the Sauvignon Blanc portion, between 31 March and 22 April, and a small portion of Semillon, on 29 April 2003. The fruit from the different vineyard blocks was pressed and fermented separately so that we had more options when creating the final blend. This also allows us to identify which vineyard systems are most suitable for these varieties and from which parcels our best fruit comes.

    Crisp, but with complex aromas of herbs and mineral alongside passion fruit and citrus. Explodes in the mouth with flavors of pineapple, pink grapefruit and more passion fruit." - Wine Enthusiast Editor's Choice
