Tasting Notes: Breezily quaffable. The nose has an enticing note of freshly baked Bakewell tart, all homemade jam and almonds. In the mouth, it's fresh and bright with a fine almond skin appeal. The wine remains fresh throughout with a lovely defining acidity which makes this a great food match by the glass.

Producer Details: Sileni Estates was born from a long-standing interest in wine by Graeme Avery. In late 1997, along with financial director Chris Cowper and winemaker Grant Edmonds, he established Sileni as an export-oriented producer, committed to crafting world-class fine wines. The winery is named after the Sileni who featured in Roman mythology alongside Bacchus, the God of Wine. They celebrated good wine, good food and good company; to us here at Boutinot the holy trinity. The vineyards and winery are based near Hastings, Hawke’s Bay - the oldest wine region in New Zealand - on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.

In The Vineyard: Grown in cooler Hawke's Bay sub regions, on a variety of soil types. Gravels provide structure, length and perfumed aromatics, while the clay soils provide roundness, sweet fruit and savoury characters.

In The Winery: Grapes were fermented in closed top stainless steel tanks, with gentle maceration via rummage and pump-overs to extract colour and tannins. Only a small portion of oak was used to highlight aromatics and provide extra richness to the palate
