“A wine that starts modestly then grows and grows. Scents of broom flower and milkiness; a palate lifted by juicy acidity with flavours of citrus, dill and other freshly cut herbs. The texture is lithe. Less is more – so much is achieved without grand sweeping gestures. Full of vivacity and life.”                               John Saker , Te Whenua No.6, March 2024

The Mendoza clone produces small, intensely flavoured bunches with abundant acidity providing the concentration and structure on which the wine is built. Citrus and fresh stone fruits are modulated and enriched by the winemaking process. Wild fermentation in barrel and extended contact with the yeast lees contribute a creamy, spicy, textural interest. There is a purity and vivacity which we are at pains to preserve throughout, at the same time building palate texture and complexity.
