Aromas of freshly baked bread crust straight from the oven, with fragrant ripe pear, lead to fresh and juicy with flavours of baked pear crumble. The wine is finely structured, with a rich, silky mouthfeel and a dry finish.
The fruit was sourced from a selection of vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau and Awatere Valleys and harvested at optimum flavour ripeness. The free run juice was drained from the press and cold settled before a cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain the varietal aromas. A small portion was fermented in old oak and underwent malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity and texture. The parcels of wine were selected by the winemakers and blended then stabilised and carefully prepared for bottling.
Matches beautifully with scallops, salmon, or a pear, rocket and blue cheese salad
