Vintage Notes

Ripe and clean fruit from the estate vineyards in the Waihopai Valley and early morning harvesting with cool temperatures have kept the full and fresh characters in each portion. This wine was skillfully blended from a large number of different tanks. Each tank giving its own particular feature to make up this lovely fresh and interesting wine.

Food Pairing

Great with appetiser, fragrant summer salads and seafood dishes. A wine to enjoy lingering over a long lunch or to start a fantastic evening.

From The Wine maker

The Waihopai range of wines sources fruit from our unique ridgetop location with dry, stony and clay soils. This characterises as low vigour and low volume crops.
As such there is more density and weight, with lemon lime and tropical notes as opposed to grassiness.
Estate grown, the range shows how skillful vineyard management can have a substantial affect through to the palate. From a winemaking perspective, portions of fruit are selected to add unique character and produce interesting tastes and textures.

About the Winery

Marlborough soils are a balanced mix of moisture and stone creating wines that are unique to our region. Our vineyards are based in one of the most dynamic climates in New Zealand, creating brilliant, fruity, fresh wines. 

Warm clear days with loads of sunshine give us great conditions for ripening the fruit. Low impact of disease such as mould means our wines are very fruit driven and pure. 

Ant Moore and our family of wine makers work hard and play hard.  We treat wine making as a meticulous marriage of science and art.  The grapes of Marlborough never sleep, and neither do we.  At all hours of the day something magical is happening on the vineyards.  Follow the story of our lives and see how passion and technology make Ant Moore wines an intimate experience…

Reviews

Racing away as this producer’s strongest wine, this peach-hued drop comes with a delicate, attractive nose of cherries, peaches, strawberry leaf and blossoms. The palate is dry with crunchy fruit and a herbal leafy undertone. The finish is long and tangy. It is a softly spoken food-friendly wine that would be great with a wide array of summer dishes.
