Technical Analysis

Location – Estate grown grapes from Aurum’s organic Te Wairere vineyard in Lowburn, near Cromwell, Central Otago. Low cropping grapes for this wine were hand harvested in April 2015 after long slow ripening.

Climate

A season of hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of ripe clean fruit still holding good acidity.

Soils

Windblown sands and silts.

Viticulture

16 year old vines on VSP trellis.

Winemaker’s comments

The grapes were mostly destemmed, cold soaked for 5 days and fermented in open vats with wild yeasts. The wine was matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. Unfined and unfiltered.

Alcohol: 14%
Bottled: July 2016
