The name Tin Cottage refers to the caravan that Dave and Christine McDonald lived in when they were searching for their dream; a wine estate in the then undiscovered area of Marlborough.
This Marlborough wine has a bright, pale straw yellow colour with tinges of green. The nose is tight at first then it opens to generous helpings of gooseberries, fresh herbs and passionfruit. The palate is super concentrated and as well as the passionfruit and gooseberry there are elements of tropical fruit interwoven through the wine. It is long and lingering in the finish.
The grapes were harvested in cool morning conditions to minimise the accumulation of any phenolics. The clear juice was then racked and cold fermented using selected yeast strains to preserve the fruit’s intense varietal flavour.
