WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

Hand picked from The Mound vineyard in the Waipara Valley, where there is a layer of clay across the soil surface which adds complexity to our wines.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The cool spring slowed the start of the season, but a warm and stable summer gave the best possible conditions for fruit and flavour development. Some rain at the start of the harvest period slowed things down, but didn't affect the overall quality.

GRAPE VARIETY

Pinot Noir

MATURATION

9 months in French oak barriques. 30% new.
