90 Point Rated & 4 Star Rated - Sam Kim Wine Orbit
Attractively fruited and nicely lifted, the bouquet shows sweet plum, thyme, toasted spice and floral aromas. The palate offers supple mouthfeel with juicy fruit flavours, finishing lingering and smooth. Well rounded and immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2024. April 2023.
A portion of the fruit was hand-picked and was plunged in small open vats until completion of ferment. The remainder of the fruit was machine picked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The ferment was pumped over twice a day with temperatures of up to 32 degrees being reached to extract the colour and tannins for the backbone of the wine. A percentage of the ferment was transferred to barrels to complete the fermentation in new oak. The remaining components were aged in one and two-year-old French oak barriques for ten months before being blended. The wine was given a light egg white fining before being bottled.
The 2020 growing season was one to remember for the amazing weather conditions in Marlborough. During Summer and Autumn, we had warm and dry conditions throughout, allowing for clean fruit and an early start to the vintage. These conditions resulted in grapes that were picked with good natural acidity relative to their sugar and flavour ripeness. 2020 will prove to be an exceptional vintage.
