||Maritime. Slightly cooler than most of the Marlborough valley with a slower annual ripening period.
|Composition of the land
||Even, fertile, deep, free-draining silt loam.
||The fruit was pressed off as quickly as possible to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration following harvesting. After settling the juice was fermented using selected yeast in 100 per cent stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. This batch was selected as a Pioneer Block wine due to its unique flavour, intensity and complexity.
||A perfect companion for seafood, this wine also complements fresh vegetable dishes.
