Nutcracker A triumph of mother nature, organically grown and naturally fermented, this wine’s complex layers deliver rich and full-bodied flavours to the palate, with a tightly structured minerality typical of the clone.
Handpicked from 24 year old Mendoza vines, this wine is very expressive with many layers. The palate is rich and full bodied yet displays a tightly structured minerality typical of the clone. Abundant flavours of stone fruit and citrus with hints of nuts, the finish is beautifully supported with elegant oak and good acidity.
Certified Organic by BioGro New Zealand. Organically managed, each plant is shoot thinned and lightly leaf plucked to provide ideal light penetration and even ripening. Very low yields ensure excellent flavours with the cool climate providing finely balanced acidity.
