VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING
The growing season in the Awatere Valley started out warm and dry, resulting in even flowering and ultimately balanced vines. The warm weather continued through Spring and Summer, with periodic rains which kept the vines hydrated throughout the growing season. These warmer conditions also meant vintage started around two weeks earlier than the previous year, with fruit that was full of flavour, naturally balanced acidity and lovely weight.
The grapes were harvested over a two week period, picking each block at the point of optimum flavour development. This year’s wine is made from fruit sourced from two of our Awatere Valley vineyards; Willowflat and Brackenfield. Each parcel was picked and fermented separately, allowing us to enhance varietal character using carefully selected yeast strains. A long, cool fermentation took place, followed by blending, stabilisation and filtering prior to bottling.
