Intense lifted mineral and fresh herb characters on the nose. The palate is well structured and elegant; intense mineral characters, with layers of black currant, nettle and wet stone with a lingering zesty citrus finish.

About Yealands:

Stretching over 2,400 acres of prime viticultural land, the Yealands Estate is New Zealand's single largest vineyard under private ownership. Located in the Awatere Valley of Marlborough, the Seaview Vineyad is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in the country: low rainfall, high sunshine, cool nights and strong winds. The result is a smaller, thicker-skinned berry and lower yielding vines which create wines of intensity, purity and complexity.

The hallmark of the Yealands Estate is an absolute commitment to sustainable wine production, an undertaking we have made from the vine to the bottle. This commitment to premium sustainable wine production has resulted in a number of notable achievements.

The Yealands Estate Winery was created to operate sustainably at every level.

As a result we have already achieved a high industrial sustainability rating. We have also been awarded carboNZeroCertâ„¢ status, joining a select group of wineries around the world who have earned this recognition.
