Extremely small crop of 800kg/ha
Hand-picked and hand-sorted on 1 April with 23 Brix
No fining pre-bottling
Bottled on 1 August 2007 under DIAM cork
Only 336 bottles produced
The DIAM cork guarantees a 100% cork taint free closure of wine bottles. These corks also offer near perfect seals and no random cork oxidation or leaks.
The cork is reduced to cork flour, before being washed with carbon dioxide removing TCA. Subsequently the flour is reconstituted and held together by the same polymer that contact lenses are made from.
Concentrated with good fruit purity and strong varietal characters. A medium-dry style with a lengthy finish.Winestate Magazine
A product of meticulous viticulture in an excellent vintage from one of Nelson’s rising stars.
Extremely rare wine with substantial body and well-spiced, citrus-fruit and pear flavours that linger well. Slightly sweet, with good delicacy and potential.[88/100] Wine Orbit

This is a smooth and very appealing style.
This is a beautifully constructed wine. Elegant power sums up the intensity of palate weight and flavour well-balanced with just the right amount of sweetness and acidity.
