13.5% Single Vineyard Awatere Valley
Lagrein is an Italian variety originally from the Alto Adige region of Trentino, in the foothills of the Italian tyrol, now finding success in Marlborough.
A fruit-driven wine with a palate of black morello cherries, red plums, hints of liquorice, tobacco, leather and vanilla.
Soft on the nose, the effect of the oak maturation is subtle, giving the wine balance, depth and structure with strong silky tannins and a spicy finish.
10 months in barrels.
