Tin Cottage refers back 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 is actually made from fruit harvested from vineyards that they rent and tend on a long term contract. 

The 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.

Conditions were very dry early in the season, with average temperatures, clear skies and a high risk of frost. Warm conditions over flowering in mid-December resulted in good yields. Decent rain in early and mid-January, allowed for healthy canopies and vigorous growth. February was hot and dry, followed by warm, dry March; perfect weather for intense flavour development.

The grapes were machine 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.
