A wine with complex blends of ripe tropical flavours with components of nashi pear and citrus that has been derived from the careful selection of various areas of our best blocks in the Waiata Vineyard, situated in the Waipara Valley. The full flavours and tight structure of the palate reflect the intrinsic qualities of the Waipara Valley vineyard. The wine has a broad spectrum of flavours, from ripe tropical through gooseberry, which is supported by a refreshing acidity and perfectly balanced residual sugar. Ripe tropical aromas and hints of passionfruit are underpinned by elements of grapefruit and gooseberry that add zingy, citrusy notes.

The Single Vineyard wines are made from a single parcel of fruit that we believe best represents the vineyard and its unique location. Only the very best parcels of fruit from harvest are identified by the wine maker and viticulturist to create this elegant range. The soils of the single vineyards and their unique climate provide a distinctive flavour and elegance to the wines. The range features a Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay sourced from an inland valley in the region where the climate is naturally cooler.
