Malborough's can be a little dull, not this one though! Lifted aromas of passionfruit, melon, and blackcurrant combine with subtle mineral notes. The rich and full palate, is exquisitely balanced with vibrant notes of passionfruit, grapefruit, and guava leading to a long mineral finish. The grapes were transported to the winery quickly and immediately pressed to minimise skin contact. After cold settling, the juice from each batch was fermented at cool temperatures, in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains. Each batch was assessed for quality and only the best components were selected for this premium blend. The wine was made in an unoaked style to preserve the purity of fruit and expressive aromatics.
Great things come from small beginnings. In 1978, Neal and Judy Ibbotson were inspired to plant their own small plot of land in the breath-taking vineyards of Marlborough. Their experience and expertise, combined with an abundance of passion, have led to the creation of some of New Zealand’s best vineyard sites. Following an ecological philosophy, the vines are sustainably cultivated and the estate holds the Sustainable Wines of New Zealand certification. As pioneers of Marlborough viticulture, they are now joined at the family winery by their three children and are producing world-class wines.
