<p>A deep ruby coloured in the glass, this wine displays lifted aromatic layers of cherry, plum and bright floral notes with supple hints of wild thyme. The palate is richly concentrated with flavours of ripe red and dark fruit, spice and integrated French oak underpinned by nuances of dry herbs and savoury characteristics. Mid-weight on the palate, this wine is balanced and mouth-filling with refined silky tannins that seamlessly lead to a long and elegant finish.</p>

<p>The grapes for this wine are sourced from two of our most stunning vineyards located&nbsp;in the upper South Island of New Zealand. The majority is sourced from our Awatere&nbsp;Valley vineyard in in Marlborough, and a third from our Whenua Matua Vineyard&nbsp;located in the Moutere Hills area of Nelson. A mix of quality clones, both of our&nbsp;vineyards selected for this wine are cropped at premium, low levels with a range of&nbsp;viticultural practices carried out to limit crop levels and maximise quality. These&nbsp;include shoot thinning, leaf plucking, crop thinning at veraison (green thinning) and&nbsp;quality control at harvest time.</p>
