WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

Sourced from The Mound, Home Block and Deans vineyards of Waipara Valley. The vineyards consist of deep free draining gravel soils, yet on The Mound Vineyard there is a layer of clay across the surface, adding complexity to our wines.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

A frost in Spring knocked the vines around but the combination of a small crop and a warm, dry summer allowed the grapes to catch up. Followed by a consistent Autumn, the 2015 season produced outstanding fruit that has resulted in a rich and complex wine.

GRAPE VARIETY

Pinot Gris

MATURATION

Stainless steel tanks on lees.
