Organic barrel white wine
Misty Cove vintner, Andrew Bailey, pushes new boundaries by releasing a co-ferment blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay from the Waitaria Bay vineyard, down the beautiful Kenepuru Sound in the Marlborough region.
Certified organic, the wine was matured in new and aged French barriques for twelve months. The engaging bouquet shows grilled peach, rockmelon, oatmeal, vanilla and hazelnut aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that is richly fruited and generously weighted and offers silky texture and an expansive mouthfeel, brilliantly structured by bright acidity.
Waitaria is best described as being multi-layered and savoury with fabulous ripe fruit flavours.
Limited production with only 3000 bottles available; each bottle individually numbered.
