    Vineyards and Winemaking

    The 2020-2021 growing season was perfect, with below average rainfall and above average temperatures. The grapes for this outstanding wine were grown off our prestigious Hawke's Bay vineyard, situated on the south banks of the Ngaruroro river, bathed in full afternoon sunshine. Grapes were harvested in optimal condition and flavour on March 17, 2021.

    At the winery the grapes were gently pressed and the juice left to settle overnight, before a small portion was transferred to seasoned barrels for fermentation with a selected Alsatian yeast.

    A slow cool controlled ferment, to preserve the aromas, was followed by short lees contact to enhance the palate weight and mouthfeel. Once racked from barrel and left to settle, the wine was gently filtered. This Vegan friendly wine was bottled on August 26th under screwcap.
