A beautifully complex wine, conveying all the characteristics of the Awatere river region. Lime zest, elderflower and notes of guava come together to form an expressive nose. The alluvial gravel, ocean influenced terroir of the site gives a chalky mineral element to the wine, providing maximum dimension, focused acidity and great overall balance. It’s textural, slightly saline and crunchy, with lovely fruit sweetness to bring it all together.
