WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

Sourced from carefully selected Hawkes Bay vineyards. The Hawkes Bay vineyards are situated on clay loam soils, sands and free draining gravels.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

<p>The grape growing season throughout the Hawkes Bay began with a warm start which resulted in good flowering and fruit set. Cool growing conditions and rain events towards the end of the season provided some challenges, but the spread of our vineyard sites across the region allowed us to harvest the fruit at optimal ripeness and flavour.</p>

GRAPE VARIETY

<p>Merlot</p>

MATURATION

<p>Once harvested, the fruit was brought into the winery where it was de-stemmed into a stainless steel fermenter. The fermentation took 10 days, during which it was pumped over twice a day to help extract colour, fruit flavours and tannins. The wine then went through a full malolactic fermentation in stainless steel before being fined using natural methods prior to bottling.</p>
