Low cropping estate grown grapes for this wine were hand-harvested in March from Aurum’s Te Wairere vineyard in the Lowburn area of Central Otago.

We experienced an unusually warm summer with hot dry days and harvested a whole month earlier.
SOILS – Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.

VINE AGE – 18-year-old vines

WINEMAKERS COMMENTS:
The grapes were whole bunch pressed to minimise extraction of skin phenolics and fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks with extensive lees stirring to increase the mouthfeel.
