This wonderfully aromatic wine was produced from grapes from two vineyards, the Barnsley vineyard in the Waihopai Valley and the Langlois vineyard in the Wairau Valley. The Barnsley fruit contributes the lifted passionfruit characters and the acid focus of the palate, whilst the Langlois fruit provides the ripe aromatics and lovely weight. The finished wine displays a dazzling array of herbal, tropical and passionfruit aromas. The palate has superb intensity, weight and texture.
