WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

The fruit from this wine was primarily sourced form the Home Block vineyard in the Waipara Valley.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

A cool summer delayed the ripening much later than normal, which helped to retain the acidity and allowed the aromatics really to develop fully. When the warm, stable weather in autumn arrived finally, it saved the day and allowed the fruit finish ripening and to be harvested in great condition.

GRAPE VARIETY

Pinot Gris.

MATURATION

Once harvested the grapes were transported to the winery, gently pressed and settled in tank. The warm fermentation was started with a handful of selected yeast strains. After the completion of ferment the wine was left to mature on full lees for up to 3 months to enhance structure and mouth feel. After blending the wine was fined using natural methods and prepared for bottling.
