The grapes for this wine were harvested in our Marlborough vineyard and transported to a contract facility for dejuicing and settling. The clear juice was transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery where it was fermented in stainless steel tanks at around 12°C using X5 yeast strain. Following fermentation the wine was blended, protein stabilized, cold stabilized and fined. The finished wine was bottled in August 2019.
