An elegant wine with real finesse, lavender flowers overlay black pepper and juicy raspberry aromas. Ripe red fruit flavours and fine grained tannin carry through a long and delicious finish.

Wine Review

Vineyards and Winemaking

This wine is from grapes grown in two of our Hawke’s Bay vineyards - Riverview and Kinross.

The grapes were harvested from the respective vineyards and transported to our Riverview winery were they were crushed to open topped stainless steel fermentation vessels and inoculated with a range of yeast strains. The ferments were pumped over several times per day until dry and then allowed from two to five days extended maceration. The wine was then pressed off the skins and some was put to barrel, where it was aged for 12 months. The wine was then transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery for final blending and finishing. Bottling was in February 2018.
