Fig, Blueberry Jam, Soft Oak
With over 2000 indigenous grape varieties to select and compose a blend, an exhaustive search was undertaken to pay homage to this historic region. Maintaining the integrity of the land was paramount while simultaneously considering the end result of a dynamic and innovative wine. <br><br> <b>Blend</b><br> A blend of Negroamaro and Nero d’Avola from the Southern Region of Puglia combined with Barbera from Piemonte in the North <br><br> <b>Winemaker Notes</b><br> Aromatic notes of black cherry, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cured meat are complemented by sandalwood, vanilla, balsa, and evergreen. Silky smooth entry is met with a textured mid-palate of velvety fig, blueberry jam, and soft oak. The finish has a hint of sea salt and fades out slowly. <br><br> <b>Aging</b><br> Barrel aged 10 months prior to release

Bright, Grapefruit & Melon, Refreshing Melon
Aromas of gardenias and early harvested stone fruits are met on the crisp palate with notes of honeysuckle mousse with hints of peaches and cantaloupe. The finish is memorable with a sense of dry minerality and a touch of sea spray.

Berry, Spicy, Plum
Much like generations of craftsmen before us, we were intent to capture the nobility of Spanish through its geographic diversity. Fruit with Mediterranean and Continental influences was sourced from 5 regions in particular: Priorat, Jumilla, Toro, Rioja, and Ribera del Duero. Old vines, low yields, and a palate attuned to excellence, work in harmony and enable us to reach our goal. <br><br> <b>Blend</b><br> Grenache/Garnacha, Tempranillo, Monastrell, Carignan/Carineña <br><br> <b>Winemaker Notes</b> Opens with aromatic notes of tobacco, cigar box, and ripe plum, and leads to an opulent palate of dark berries, earth, hints of spice, and sweet tobacco with a lengthy, luscious finish <br><br> <b>Aging</b><br> Barrel aged 10 months prior to release

Gooseberries, Feijoas, Tropical
The base of our blend is comprised of fruit from vineyards in the heart of the Wairau Valley, with its traditional passionfruit and crisp grassy flavors. This component is complemented by the second wave of plantings in the ever expanding Awatere Valley, which is noted for the minerality and elegant characteristics the fruit gains from the region's proximity to the Pacific Ocean. For the balance of this wine, we have sought out fruit from the southern valley of Waihopai, where the gravel soils, and later, cooler ripening climate produce Sauvignon Blanc characteristics that provide the final layer of complexity and brings balance to our inaugural release of NZ. In the glass, a brilliant pale yellow reminiscent of white currants; the wine opens with an intense bouquet of gooseberries, feijoas, and ripe tropical fruits. The bright entry of fresh cut grass and preserved lemon lead to passionfruit pot de creme showcasing a long finish of fresh herbs and clean minerality.
