Winemaker Notes

This wine shows lifted passionfruit and citrus notes. The palate exhibits the same fine fruit flavors with an underlying flinty notes typical of Awatere Valley fruit.

"Lime, mineral and green mango flavors mingle enticingly in this tart, lively wine, lingering on the beautifully formed finish, echoing with a hint of passion fruit."

One of their ancestors is thought to have been a 'taster' for William the Conqueror. The rooster on the label is from the family crest, the emblem on the rooster is an indication of the family's lineage.The Vavasours arrived in New Zealand and established themselves in the Awatere Valley in 1890.
