“Grippy and dense with lots of structure and focus. It has ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit but also some firm, grippy structure. The fruit has some ripeness: it’s quite silky and there’s some prettiness. But there’s also a lot of structure here that at the moment dominates a touch. Still, this wine is drinking really well now, but it has massive potential when these tannins resolve a bit.” – Jamie Goode
“A more meaty, spicy and earthy nose with a succulent palate that has plenty of red-cherry fruit. Riper tannins roll into the finish. Drink now.” – James Suckling
Tasting Note: Set 200 metres above sea level, spanning a ridge line between the Omaka and Waihopai valleys, the Churton Vineyard is a unique Marlborough site. Close planted in rows that follow the natural contours of the land, this block is the embodiment of Sam & Mandy Weaver’s intellect and their commitment to site expression. The dense clay soils of the Clod Block lend savoury structure to a vivid fruit core. Picked without a second thought; tannin, volume and savoury structure frame vivid fruit and florals. Early days for seeing the vineyard signature but there’s a grit and depth to this wine that signals great things to come. Spice, cloves, cured meat.
