As contemporary negociants Steve Smith and Brian Sheth seek out the exceptional. We have made the most of over 35 years of experience with the growers and makers of New Zealand – forging relationships, hand selecting the best parcels from exceptional vineyards only, then nurturing, blending and bottling these wines. Establishing steadfast relationships with the land, growers and makers who form the DNA of our CRU. 

The french call it terroir - a sense of place. In New Zealand we have our own defining word - turangawaewae - our place to stand in the world - it describes the special connection of a people and the land they live, love and work in. Our wines reflect the magic and alchemy of this relationship and the true beauty of these places. 

A Clean and bright Pale Straw colour. Citrus, ripe grapefruit and tropical melon fruit flavours with toasty, nutty oak characters from the influence of barrels. Medium bodied yet intense and long length. The structure is nicely fleshy with great concentration while still having finesse. It is not a heavy wine and the richness and beautifully linear acidity make it a fantastic match with food. Drink in 5 – 7 years.
