Tasting Note: This wine shows flavours of passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf with underlying notes of wet stone and thyme. The palate displays good weight and texture, with a focused mineral acidity which delivers fantastic length to the wine.


Food Matching: An amazing match with goats cheese salad, poultry dishes and seafood dishes such as freshly shucked oysters, prawns, green lip mussels and creamy scallops.


Vineyard: Yealands Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours. This wine is a blend of two different blocks on the property – one warmer, sheltered inland block and a coastal block. The wine brings together in harmony the diverse spectrums of the blocks; the warmer site contributing the expressive aromatics and the cooler site giving the mineral backbone and length.


Vinification: Two parcels from the Seaview Vineyard were selected for this wine and harvested individually over two days. The fruit was de-stemmed then pressed gently prior to cold settling for 72 hours. The clear juice was then racked off and each parcel was fermented separately using two different yeasts. A long cool fermentation followed to capture and enhance the pure aromatics. The wine was blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Decanter (DCT) : 90 Points (2018)
Attractive bouquet with sweet herb and ripe fruit aromas. Juicy, fleshy palate with floral notes and hints of mineral.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 89 Points (2017)
Citrus and pear flavors show intriguing notes of lanolin and fresh ginger, set on a bright, juicy body. Offers plenty of style and balance. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 89 Points (2016)
This is a bit austere and linear, but the tradeoff is that it's refreshingly brisk and long on the finish. Tart citrus—think grapefruit—forms the core of the wine, garnished by hints of struck flint.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16.5 Points (2015)
July 2016 - Peter Yealands' extensive estate is in the Awatere Valley. Two different parcels, one near the coast. Long, cool tank fermentation. pH 3.23, TA 6.75 g/l, RS 3.5 g/l. Intense aroma that is both ripe citrus and more tropical - mango and passion fruit. The touch of residual sugar is - thankfully - not intrusive and tastes more like fruit sweetness, balanced by clean-cut freshness. Rounded and generous and ripe. Overall on the rich and curvaceous side but the acidity holds it in shape. Packed with fruit. Maybe almost too much fruit and aroma to be versatile with food but very easy to drink on its own. (JH)

Aromas of rasberry and blueberrys with herbal savoury notes. On the palate it is a refreshing combination of crunchy refreshing acidity, bright fruit flavours with some undertones of savoury complexity.
