Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has excellent varietal bouquet with passionfruit, melon, peach and spice notes. The palate has power and weight, silken texture, richness and balance with great length and splendid natural acidity. The wine is best enjoyed while still young and exuberant. Food Suggestions: Oysters, seafood and white meats and as an aperitif with canapes.

2002 was an exceptional year in Marlborough. Ideal spring weather was followed by a warm and extremely dry summer which produced probably the best vintage yet seen in Marlborough. This great weather allowed us to pick the precise day of ripening with no compromise, producing an absolutely stunning wine with intense tropical fruit flavours combined with silken mouth feel and great length.
