WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

Sourced soley from The Mound Vineyard in the Waipara Valley. The vineyard has free draining soils of gravely loams over alluvial subsoil.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The bud break this year was late September early Octover followed by a settled and warm spring without any frost set backs. The plants enjoyed good growth. We went into an early flower set, the earliest on our records and also one of the best. The summer and ripening season were dry and cool. Through the growing season we had 230ml of rain. The hottest month being December with an average temperature of 18 degrees.

GRAPE VARIETY

Riesling

MATURATION

After harvesting the grapes were transported to the winery and crusehd with minimal skin contact to avoid juice deterioration. After cold settling, each batch was cool fermented in stainless steel using a variety of cultured yeasts to add complexity to the blend and to retain fresh fruit characteristics. The wines were blended shortly after the completion of fermentation, then carefully balanced and prepared for bottling.
