WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

The Mound Vineyard of the Waipara Valley with Glasnevin loam soils over gravels.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

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

Sauvignon Blanc.

MATURATION

6 months in 100% French oak barriques, 15% new.
