Description

With vines that were planted way back in 1986, Luna Estate has long flown under the radar, but for no longer. Located in Martinborough, Luna Estate source their fruit from two individual vineyards with a unique mix of geology. Interestingly, what makes their site so unique is the high proportion of clay and limestone in the soil, with as much as 70% of their site made up of this. This gives the wine a distinct Vosne-Romanee ethereality, whilst still retaining its NZ identity. A spectacular example of what small producers in New Zealand are capable of making. Only 385 dozen produced, so it is definitely a rare wine!

Smells

Bright cherry blossom and raspberry, with a touch of florality to it. An incredibly pretty nose that is very inviting.

Tastes

Seductive and soft, the velvety red fruits glide over your mouth before making way to a hint of toastiness. Incredibly fine tannins and a gorgeous mouthfeel make for an elegant, ethereal wine that would not be out of place in any cellar. Truly a remarkable wine. Cellar through to 2025.
