Meticulously crafted Marlborough treat

    • Bill & Claudia have done it again, showing off all the wonderment the Marlborough has to offer. This wine combines grapes from two of the areas most renowned sub-regions, the Awatere and Wairau Valleys.
    • Cool fermenting helped retain the hallmark vibrant aromas and flavours of Marlborough fruit. Citrus and melon aromas leap from the glass before the crisp and dry palate delights with lively fruit layers. This baby is utterly drinkable...sunshine in a bottle!
    • The last vintage scored a whopping 94% buy-again rating from thousands our beloved Angels, which is pretty tough to argue with! Of course, the fact that Angels can get this quality Marlborough drop at an unbelievably low price is another reason why it's hard to ignore. Don't fight it, go wild and lap up all the fun this wine has to offer.

Ageing advice
Most appealing when drunk within a year or two of bottling

Serving advice
Serve chilled in the summer sunshine - or whenever you need to be reminded of summer sunshine!

Local food match
Lovely with shellfish - clams, oysters, mussels etc, but just as nice on its own as an aperitif
