An attractive bouquet of crushed fresh herbs, grapefruit and tropical island fruits.
The palate weight is generously balanced with lovely and fne crisp acidity that gives this wine elegance and grace. The palate expresses hues of gooseberry, juicy passionfruit with a lemon twist.
Low yields; hand harvested; whole bunch pressed. Fermented in old oak predominantly and aged on lees allowing natural malolatic fermentation with very little winemaker intervention.
The 2015 vintage had the one of the driest growing seasons experienced in Marlborough. With this minimal rain fall and above average day time temperatures, subsequently the wines are outstanding with punchy aromas and deliciously intense palate weight and favour. Ant Moore wines are generally more restrained with minerality, complexity and great balance. Control and hands-on management of the vineyards and the winemaking process created rich wines, with ripe favours, good texture and fresh lifted aromas. Signatures of the Marlborough terroir.
White meats such as chicken or veal especially if accompanied by a creamy sauce or with spring vegetables.
