Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker’s comments: The nose has beautiful aromatics of ripe gooseberry, lime, passionfruit and grapefruit. The palate is complex and layered with ripe tropical fruit and an underlying minerality, typical of the Awatere Valley. The wine is gently structured with acidity providing balance and length. The wine will gain further texture with some short term bottle age. VINTAGE The 2007 vintage was characterised by moderate yields and ideal growing conditions. Marlborough experienced a poor flowering in December resulting in a tempering of yields. From the end of January to harvest rainfall was low and days were sun-drenched, allowing the fruit to reach optimal maturity in terms of flavour development and balance. VINEYARDS The picturesque Taylors Pass Vineyard is located on the north bank of the meandering Awatere River in Marlborough. With soil ranging from silty look over gravels to stony gravels, the vineyard consistently produces ripe and full flavoured fruit. WINEMAKING The fruit was picked at optimal ripeness, gently pressed after a period of skin contact and the finest free run juice cool fermented, savouring the superior aromatics.
