VINTAGE REGION

The Mound Vineyard, Waipara Valley.

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.
