Judges Comments:

Grown in the gravels of Marlborough, the reflected sun from the stones adds intensity to the ripening process and local indigenous yeast gives a complexity and flavour to the finished wine. Perfect with fresh Marlborough produce, the wine is rich, ripe and textural with loads of concentrated fruit and acid to provide balance and length. Appealing flinty characters giving a touch of struck flint complexity, a well-made and polished example.

Pairing Recommendation:

A super versatile wine that enhances all sorts of foods from the Sunday roast, pot-luck dinners, Mexican dishes, burger and ribs, pizza and pasta, as well as light lunches, savoury salads and of course picnics. Pair it with meaty and oily fish like salmon, tuna, hapuka and scallops, crayfish and crab as well as grilled mushrooms. Perfect with chips and dips, antipasti, smoked salmon, pre-dinner nibbles and cheese, particularly mozzarella, brie, camembert and feta.
