Technical Analysis

Location – 45 Degrees South
Low cropping grapes for this wine were hand harvested from our Te Wairere vineyard in Lowburn, Central Otago.

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

Soils
Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.

Vine age
6 year old vines

Trellis Style
VSP with cane pruned vines.

Winemakers comments: Grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented in French oak barrels (25% new oak) with wild yeasts. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in the following spring. Unfined and unfiltered.
