WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

100% Waipara Valley (67% Home Block, 33% Deans Vineyard)

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The cool spring slowed down 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

100% Pinot Gris

MATURATION

Mostly machine harvested, cool pressed and settled then fermented in stainless steel tanks for freshness. The ferments were stopped when the wine was balanced and then left cold and unsulphured for over a month so the yeast could naturally settle and the flavours could develop.
