WINEMAKERS COMMENTS

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 perstective, portions of fruit are selected to add unique character and produce interesting tastes and textures.

FOOD MATCH

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