Low cropping grapes for this wine were hand-harvested from our Te Wairere vineyard in Lowburn, Central Otago.
A season of hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of very ripe clean fruit still holding good acidity.
Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.
6 year old vines

Winemakers Comments: Grapes were whole bunch pressed, and fermented in French oak barrels (15% new oak) with wild yeasts. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in the following spring.
