The was a near perfect season, with good summer weather, long sunshine hours and sufficient heat through the summer to ripen the fruit steadily. The vintage was a cracker, one of the best on record. The fruit was picked at opDmal maturity, the fruit was fully ripe. The weather gods played ball throughout the harvest and well into Autumn. Yields were at ‘Normal’ crop levels of 8t/ha. The vineyard is nestled under Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku (Maori” “Footprint of the Rainbow”). At the top of the Southern Alps, it strongly influences the climate, with its rain shadow bestowing low rainfall and low humidity upon the Awatere Valley. Along with sunny days and cool nights this creates perfect conditions for slow steady ripening and flavour development. Awatere grapes have a distinctive fruity yet steely and herbaceous flavour quite different to those produced elsewhere in Marlborough.

TASTING NOTES
A gently savoury and medium-bodied Merlot, this rare Marlborough version is the opposite of the bold-fruited Hawkes Bay style. With a lighter colour and fruit character along with a slight gamey/prosciutto nature, this one shines at the dinner table at least as much as at the fireside. A thinking person’s Merlot if you like Give it a try.
