Winemaker Notes

#28 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The wine is light straw in color with green highlights. Aromas of ripe capsicum, gooseberry and grapefruit dominate with tropical fruit notes apparent. This wine displays full fruit intensity. The ripe capsicum flavors meld well with the gooseberry and supporting mango and passionfruit flavors. A well balanced wine showing the lively, crisp acidity associated with this style.

This wine can be matched with grilled oysters, barbecued prawns or salmon as well as poached white fi sh with fresh green salads containing parsley, pepper or lemon. Mediterranean and Turkish dishes with hummus, olives and feta will also match well. Though made to drink while it is young and vivacious, this wine may be cellared for up to three years to develop further complexity.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator

This is crisp, offering a lively mouthful of peach-accented grapefruit and mineral flavors, all hanging on effortlessly through the long, graceful finish.

WE 89
Wine Enthusiast

Carves a path right down the center of Marlborough’s stylistic fairway, featuring hints of bell pepper, stone fruit and wet-stone minerality. It’s medium in body, with flavors of nectarine, herbal flourishes and a dry, stony finish. Drink now.
