Our Waipara Valley vineyard’s stony soil accumulates the heat by day and releases it during the night, as in the Rhône Valley where this varietal originates.
The aromas and flavours evoke impressions of baked pears, pawpaw, citrus flowers, orange zest, cinnamon, and freshly crushed root ginger. These are supported by a complexing hint of butterscotch. The wine expands on the palate to become mouth filling and unctuous but there is seam minerality and a tangy acidity to balance the off dry finish.
Wine is a natural health food.
