Tasting Note:
An enticing combination of pink grapefruit, burnt orange and white
nectarine mingles with more savoury aromas of smoked almonds, hazelnut meringue and the
heady fragrance of freshly cut hay. The mealy savouriness carries through onto a rich, textural
palate, evidence of this wine’s low-intervention winemaking. An intricate bone-dry style that is
highly concentrated with a distinct flintiness, tight structure and crisp citrussy finish.

Additional Information

  • Description
  • New Zealand does not have a designated national rock, but if one was ever chosen it would have to be greywacke (pron: grey-wacky). This drab grey stone is found everywhere in New Zealand – on the mountains, in the rivers, on the beaches. It consists of layers of hard, muddy grey sandstone alternating with thinner layers of darker mudstone (argillite). Technically the term greywacke refers to the sandstone (wacke is a German name for a type of sandstone), but it is also used as a general term for the entire rock.
