The grapes come from the family-owned Loveblock Farm in Lower Dashwood, Marlborough. Relatively unique in Marlborough, these grapes were sourced entirely from our certified-organic estate vineyard, the Woolshed. Here, the vineyard soils are alluvial silt over stone. Organic management decreases the vigour of the vines, reducing berry size and hence overall yields. The grapes were harvested in late March yielding nine tonnes per hectare.
Colour:Pale with golden touches.
Aroma:Elegant aromas of rockmelon yield to layers of chamomile and citrus.
Palate:Beautiful prosciutto-wrapped melon, Nashi pear and fruit notes are underscored with lingering texture, mouthfeel and linear acidity. The palate is complex, finishing with hints of wet stone minerality.

Organic status:Certified organic – BioGro #5266.
