Mineral & Fresh

Proudly family owned, the Borthwick vineyard is an established vineyard situated in Gladstone, the heart of the Wairarapa. Producing quality wine for over a decade, Paddy, an experienced wine maker, has gained a reputation for producing consistently great wines. The twenty seven hectares of vines bordering the Ruamahunga River are growing on stony, free draining, alluvial soils, with a micro climate giving warm daily temperatures, cool nights and low rainfall; perfect conditions for producing distinctive, quality wines.

Lifted fruit aromas of nectarines, apricots and pineapple have integrated with fermentation in oak to produce a wine of great texture. Extended yeast contact has leant itself to a creamy palate, with almond and toasted bread aromas. This wine shows depth of fruit and great palate weight that is enjoyable now or cellar for the next 6 years.

A great wine to pair with seafood, roast chicken, soft, creamy cheeses or grilled fish.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered.

This is gorgeously expressed on the nose showing golden peach, baked fig, mango and vanillin oak characters with a touch of brioche. The palate displays excellent weight and concentration together with creamy mouthfeel and bright acidity, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2023.
