WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

Handpicked from the Home Block vineyard in the Waipara Valley with Glasnevin loam soils over gravel.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

A major frost about a month into the growing season knocked the vines back, affecting the yields. Thankfully the combination of small crops and a warm dry summer created ideal conditions to ripen the fruit quickly and produce very intense flavours. With warm autumn conditions prevailing, the fruit was harvested in perfect condition.

GRAPE VARIETY

Pinot Gris

MATURATION

Whole bunch pressed, then cold settled for two days before racking to barrels and puncheons for fermentation over four weeks. The barrels were topped, left over the winter months, then stirred weekly in the spring to promote texture. The barrels were assessed and the blend fined using traditional methods prior to bottling.
