The rows of vines in this vineyard for this wine are planted at an unusual angle of 43 degrees northeast to south-west in Marlborough’s lower Wairau region, east of Blenheim township. This leads to slightly greener characters in grapes on the south-facing side and more tropical characters in grapes on the north-facing side. The resulting wine is therefore multi-dimensional and complex.
The aromas are of white currant, passionfruit skin and crushed herbs. While the palate lends into green capsicum with layers of freshly cut jalapeno and tropical passionfruit notes. A mineral and salty richness lead to a long lingering finish.
