  • Other Information:Vintage:, Minimal frosts during the spring and perfect flowering conditions resulted in a good crop and even berry set. A warm early summer initially, but temperatures cooled after solstice to give a long ripening period, with stable conditions until the end of the first week of April. Heavy rain followed, but the fruit remained in good condition., Winemaking:, Fruit was hand-picked, destemmed and cooled. After pre-fermentation steeping, the juice was warmed and fermented with wild yeast, and the caps hand-plunged daily during fermentation. The wine was left on skins for 2 weeks of post-ferment maceration, then drained, lightly pressed and transferred to French oak barriques, of which 10% were new. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation during 11 months maturation, before it was bottled unfiltered and unfined., Viticulture:, The fruit comes mostly from our clay-rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard in the Omaka Valley, with a small amount also from the alluvial shingles of our Tatou vineyard and the Noa vineyard, which is made up of Waimakariri type soils of alluvial origin.
