Winemaker's Notes

In the province of Marlborough high sunshine hours are moderated by a mild sea, while steep mountains keep moist and chilly winds at bay. A long cool growing season leads to gorgeous flavours. My goal is to make the Province wines in a classic Marlborough vein, emphasising the varietal intensity created by leafy vineyards, ripe fruit and cool-climate growing. – Simon Waghorn, Winemaker

Appearance: Mid straw gold.

Nose: Full ripe melon and dried stone fruits and fig, light nut meal and brûlée notes, with some light leesiness.

Palate: A wine of gentle creaminess and elegant texture, with tropical and stonefruit flavours, pleasing weight and long, dry finish.

Food: Great with poultry, pork and light game, creamy seafood and pasta dishes, mushroom risotto, and paella.

Cellaring: The wine will be at its best drinking after two year’s bottle age in early 2016. The wine was bottled 27th February, 2014, and is already drinking very well.

Alcohol: 13%
