(2011) 14.0%. A small proportion of this Marlborough wine was fermented with wild yeasts in older oak barrels, which perhaps adds to the nutty, oatmeally notes on the nose, with a candy-apple fruitiness beneath. There's an attractive, delicate floral note too. On the palate this is off-dry, with a big rush of very sweet, very intense pineapple and mango fruit that is vivaciously Marlborough. The pear and apple acidity tempers the finish, playing against the sweetness, though one does feel the power of the alcohol. This would come into its own with the right food: Thai perhaps, or crepes with creamy chicken.
