A single block wine from within our Felton Terraces Vineyard at the end of Felton Road, tucked between the mountains in Long Gully. This block is named after a young Maori warrior Kolo, who famously defended his mother and young sister from a Haast eagle attack; according to local legend.

Intensely savoury perfume of cassia bark, cassis, black pepper, smoky bacon and forest floor.
