Tasting Notes

This wine is made from a blend of grapes grown in the Gimblett Gravels sub region of Hawkes Bay. These free draining shingle soils have excellent drainage and low vigour. Our vineyard sites are close planted and yields per vine are kept low to maximise fruit quality.

Technical Notes

The individual vineyard parcels are de-stemmed to our fermenters and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Once active, the ferments are hand plunged to gently extract all available tannin and colour from the skins. After a period on skins, the wines are pressed to barrel and tank for malolactic fermentation. The individual varietal and vineyard parcels are aged separately in barrel for 12 months before being bottled.
