Wine tasting notes

Subtle on the nose with warm notes of ripe yellow stone-fruit, soft passion fruit and a chalky-mineral complexity. The palate is layered and finely-textured, with ripe gooseberry, tropical and citrus notes, framed by a mouth-watering acidity, which creates a persistent finish

Vinification Notes

Six parcels of fruit, from across two vineyards, were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The free run juice was settled naturally then transferred to either a small stainless steel vessel or old French oak vessel, whereby each parcel undertook and completed fermentation naturally. After a long period of fermentation (8-16 weeks) each parcel was racked and topped, with a small addition of SO₂. The parcels then remained on lees for 9 months, after which they were blended, stabilised and filtered. A small portion of Sémillon (8.4%) is included in the blend. The portion of barrel fermentation and aging is 15%. Sourced from old vines that thrive on river silt terraces in the Central Wairau Valley as well as a clay-rich Raupo Creek vineyard, which has a gentle north-west facing aspect, settled in the centre of the Omaka Valley. Both vineyards are managed following Organic and Biodynamic principles
