Wonderful aromatics of yellow flowers, lime, and a warm summer meadow. Lovely delicious palate brimming with nectarine, fresh lime, and hints of ripe nectarine and gooseberry finishing with a lovely long feel of the stony soils and refreshing acidity.
Sourced from low yielding old vines averaging 25 years in age from the rocky, bony soils around the Renwick township in Marlborough blended with biodynamically grown hillside fruit from the Sam and Mandy Weavers Churton Vineyard.
About Smith & Sheth
As contemporary negociants, Steve Smith MW and Brian Sheth seek out the exceptional, hand selecting the best grapes from the finest vineyards. Establishing steadfast relationships with the land, growers and makers who form the DNA of Smith & Sheth's CRU. The French call it "terroir" – a sense of place. In New Zealand we have our own defining word - Tūrangawaewae - our place to stand in the world.
This word describes the special connection of a people and the land they live, love and work in. Smith & Sheth's wines reflect the magic and alchemy of this relationship and the true beauty of these places.
Their DNA is expressed through the wine and woven into our visual language. Central to the label designs are the DNA strands that define the different grape clones used in their wines. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah: the essence of these varietals is illustrated on the bottles and captured within them. The logo, S&S entwined, is the DNA helix representing the foundations of the story: Smith and Sheth seeking the exceptional.
