"The latest tiger takes everything we've learned so far from this limestone rich site nestled in the longbush valley approximately 20km north of Martinborough. The small 2 acre plot of grapevines are tended as part of a wider sustainable living ethos.
My intention this year was to illustrate the salty mineral nature of this ancient foreshore, a character I've noticed in the fruit but felt was muted with our traditional extraction program. By pulling back on maceration time significantly and also embracing the completeness of the crop we offer an electric red full of vivacity and youthful energy.
Aromas of red fruit, hoisin and shitake have me thinking of duck this summer and salivating acidity promises a happy future. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have the opportunity to ferment and share this fruit with our friends around the world. "
