WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

The Mound Vineyard, Waipara Valley

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The bud break was late September early October followed by a settled and warm spring without any frost set backs. The plants enjoyed good growth. We went into an early flower set, the earlist on our records and also one of the best. The summer and ripening season were dry and cool. Through the growing season we had 230mm of rain, the hottest month being December with an average temperature of 18 degrees.

GRAPE VARIETY

100% Riesling

MATURATION

The juice was naturally cold settled and racked before fermentation with a selection of yeast strains at cool temperatures (12-15 degrees celsius) for approximately three weeks. The wine was then chilled, racked and sulphured with minimal less contact prior to blending.
