Winemaker's Notes:

Intense gooseberry, tomato leaf, fresh cut fennel and red capsicum characters underpinned by the classically pungent melon, guava and passion fruit aromatics, immediately fill the senses. The palate is extraordinarily balanced with bright seamless acidity, concentration of brambly grapefruit, minerial lemongrass flavors and a long supple lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Wither Hills:

Wither Hills vineyard has a significant 300 hectares of superb viticultural land nestled in the heart of the region's Wairau Valley. The Wairau Valley is the major grape growing area of Marlborough bordered by the landmark range of hills to the South - the Wither Hills. The vineyards flourish in free draining, silty alluvial loam over deep stony river deposits, providing a near perfect growing environment.

Wither Hills is founded on the sincere belief that the finest wines are always created from exceptional vineyards. The combination of winemaking and viticultural expertise is a powerful one that yields genuine rewards for those who appreciate premium wines.
