5 Stars - 93 Points Wine Orbit

A stylish expression; the elegantly lifted bouquet shows Gala apple, lemon peel, oatmeal and subtle spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is beautifully weighted and rounded. It is texturally appealing with lovely fruit vibrancy, leading to a lengthy engaging finish. Sam Kim, Wine Orbit




5 Stars, 93 pts – Wine Orbit June 2019





Delicate aromas of orange blossom, citrus and stonefruit blend
with hints of sweet floral honeysuckle.
Grüner Veltliner is a very textural wine. Flavours of white peach mingle
well with the subtle peppery spice notes. Mineral complexity, which is
so reflective of the Blind River sub region, gives this wine a clean and
crisp appeal. The balance of the fruit, acidity and phenolics work
beautifully together and lead to a long dry finish.
Delicate aromas of orange blossom, citrus and stonefruit blend

Perfect for enjoying now, the structure and weight of this wine will gain complexity for the next 4 years. Enjoy with oily seafood such as salmon and tuna or, alternatively, roasted pork and duck





The 2017 growing season presented some challenges with a majo r earthquake in November affecting trellising at the home block. Variable weather during the flowering period in Spring delivered moderate crop levels and a cool and windy Summer required a lot of canopy manipulation. This hard work rewarded us with good quality fruit showing classic flavours and balance. Careful harvest decisions along with fast, flexible picking and good management in the winery have ensured an exciting spectrum of flavours in the harvested grapes.
The grapes for this single vineyard wine were grown by the McKee family in the Blind River sub-region of the Awatere Valley. Careful vineyard management during the growing season ensured the grapes were kept in balance to allow even and optimal ripening. Once the flavours of the grapes reached their peak whole bunches were hand-picked to minimise phenolics from the skins. A press cut was made early and the free run juice was fermented in tank to retain fruit character and freshness.
