WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

All of the fruit for this wine was sourced from The Mound vineyard; one of our estate vineyards located in Waipara Valley.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

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

GRAPE VARIETY

Riesling

MATURATION

The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and only the free run juice was cold settled and racked a few days later. The cool fermentation was started with cultural yeast, to add just the right amount of freshness and complexity. After fermentation the wines were again cold settled and racked shortly after. The wine was prepared for bottling using natural fining methods.
