Why we love this wine
Grapes & TerroirTerrace Edge is ultra-fastidious in its organic vineyard to ensure the fruit has an intense concentration of flavour. At harvest approximately 10% of the fruit had lovely noble botrytis giving great concentration.
ViticultureA virtual frost-free spring meant early growth and good even fruit set, followed by a very hot and dry December and January. At the end of January, the trend turned towards humid weather which meant the vineyard team needed to put in extra work to avoid disease. The traditional scenario of a North Canterbury summer then set in again, bringing with it a record number of hot and dry Nor’ West days in March.
WinemakingFermented in stainless steel at low temperatures to retain vibrant fruit flavour. The wine was handled very gently to retain some natural spritz.
TastingDeeply layered aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruits, along with honey and yellow stonefruits. Medium in style, the palate is rich and lusciously opulent with exotic, ripe citrus and tropical fruits entwined with honey and marmalade.
Wine & Food PairingGreat as a summer glass of wine on its own with friends. Great with hard cheeses.
