LOCATION – Estate-grown grapes from Aurum’s organic Te Wairere vineyard in Lowburn, near Cromwell, Central Otago. Low cropping grapes for this wine were hand-harvested in April 19 after long slow ripening.
CLIMATE – A season of hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of ripe clean fruit still holding good acidity.
SOILS – Windblown sands and silts.
VITICULTURE – 9-year-old vines on VSP trellis.
Aurum’s philosophy is to work as closely as possible with nature. Our vineyard and winery are managed using certified organic practices and we thrive to produce wines that speak truthfully of their origins. Organics is the defining philosophy of our vineyard management and part of an overall goal to achieve continuous improvements in vineyard sustainability and to make better wines.
The grapes for this wine were carefully nurtured by viticulturalist Brook Lawrence
and hand harvested from young vines on our Te Wairere vineyard. Libera was vinified
with the expression of youth and purity in mind, in a traditional fashion in open top
fermenters, hand plunged and with natural yeasts without the addition of sulfur
during the winemaking process
Unsulfured, unfined, and unfiltered. 100% grapes
Bottled: July 2020
