WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

Sourced from the Home Block Vineyard in the Waipara Valley.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

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

GRAPE VARIETY

<p>100% Chardonnay</p>

MATURATION

<p>Machine harvest fruit was cool pressed and settled before going into cool fermentation for around three weeks. The wine was then left on lees and stirred for four months before MLF.</p>
