Why we love it
A classic example of Greywacke’s interpretation of the famous Marlborough style – ripe, textural and
scrumptious – but with the volume turned well down.

Tasting notes
Lemon yellow in colour. On the nose, aromas of cassis and passionfruit are first to emerge, with guava,
crisp pear and white peach adding a delicious fruit-salad intricacy. The palate is generous yet refreshing, with ripe pineapple and a lime sherbet zing, layered with elderflower and hints of citrus blossom.

Food pairing
Food pairings include goat cheese salad, grilled asparagus and oysters with a lime vinaigrette.

Additional information
The grapes were lightly pressed to yield a modest volume of high-quality juice. The juice was then cold settled and racked prior to fermentation. This was primarily using cultured yeast in stainless steel for cool, slow fermentation. However,  a portion of the juice was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation in old oak. The batches were left on the lees and kept separate until late June, when the blend was assembled. The wine was bottled in mid-August 2022.
