Winemaker's Notes

Bright & Fruity

The palate shows good fruit concentration, and a wonderful balance between texture, fruit weight and acidity, with a bright citrus finish.

More information

Seaview Vineyard

Awatere Valley

Our Seaview Vineyard, in the Awatere Valley, is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours.

Three Aromatic Parcels

The cool site regularly commences harvest up to one week later than other sub regions of Marlborough. All three aromatic varieties sit on sheltered, north facing slopes. The soil is predominantly wind blown loess.

All varieties were able to be picked at optimal ripeness and in good time. Conditions over the flowering period were stable creating nice even crop levels in the vineyards which translated into wines with great concentration and texture.

Our unique aromatic blend consists of Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Riesling. We carefully selected a parcel of each and harvested them all together.

Winemaker's Notes

Ovals & Barriques

The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed then gently pressed, with the free run juice going to a stainless tank and the pressings portion going to a 1000L French oak oval and a selection of old French oak barriques. The free run juice in the stainless steel tank was settled for 72hrs and then the clear juice was then racked off to another stainless tank for a long cool fermentation to enhance the pure fruit flavours.

Tasting Notes

Wonderful Balance

Beautifully matched with all Asian cuisine, seafood, chicken and pork dishes.

Food Pairings

Asian cuisine, seafood, white meats.

This is an excellent wine to pair with Asian cuisine, as the palate is so well balanced it compliments the complex, fragrant flavours beautifully.

Michael Cooper

13th December 2016

The 2015 vintage is a blend of Pinot Gris, Gew├╝rztraminer and Riesling, estate-grown at Seaview, in the lower Awatere Valley. Scented and mouthfilling, it is a vibrantly fruity, off-dry wine (5.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), with generous, citrusy, peachy flavours, spicy notes, and excellent delicacy and length.

Aromatic blend of Pinot Gris (49%), Riesling (32%) and Gewurztraminer (19%) grown in the Awatere Valley. Mouthfilling and dry, with gentle spiciness, and excellent weight, texture and harmony.
