A powerful wine with assertive flavours of ripe peaches and spice, elegantly framed by a touch of sweetness and a fresh acidity, built to last!

It’s our Moutere clay soils, the dazzling Nelson sun and the finger prints of our team that make our wines unique. We hope you’ll enjoy! 

Reviews

92/100 Cameron Douglas MS 

Exotic and inviting fragrances of ripe green pear d'Anjou, golden apple, honeysuckle, and a leesy white pepper spice. Equally enticing on the palate with spices and a core of fruit, flavours of stones and lees, mineral and apple.
Ideal drinking from 2021 through 2024+.

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper

Pale lemon/green, it is fleshy, with strong, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, fresh acidity, slight sweetness and a distinctly spicy finish. Best drinking 2022+.
