  • Other Information:Vintage: A cool start to the year, with some late frosts, but the weather was settled for flowering and fruit set. The summer was warm and very dry, resulting in berries and bunches being smaller than average. Harvest took place in good conditions, resulting in fruit which showed aromatic ripeness as well as a balanced, fresh acidity. Winemaking: The fruit was hand-picked, destemmed and cooled, the juice was warmed and fermented with wild yeast, and the caps hand-plunged daily during fermentation. The wine was left on skins for 4-5 weeks, then drained, lightly pressed and transferred to aged French oak barriques. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation during 11 months maturation, before it was bottled lightly filtered and unfined. Viticulture: The fruit comes mostly from the Noa vineyard, which is made up of Waimakariritype soils of alluvial origin, with a small amount also from the clay-rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard in the OmakaValley.
