  • Other Information:Tasting Note: Savoury and complex, crafted with ageing in mind. The supple tannins provide structure for rich and succulent fruit weight, creating a balance between power and elegance. Drink dates: Now until 2022 Vintage: 2011 was a good year for Marlborough, with an even and quick flowering and fruit set. Light rain in December and January provided enough moisture to aid the vines in the warm and dry summer that followed, and the fruit was harvested over the course of a long, fine Indian summer. Vineyard: The majority of the fruit comes from our clay rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard, which has a gentle north-west facing aspect settled in the centre of the OmakaValley. The remaining portion was from Tatou vineyard which is located at the western end of the Wairau Valley on stony free draining soils. Each vine is thinned to carry one bunch per shoot. Winemaking: Fruit was hand-picked, hand-sorted, cooled and destemmed. After pre-fermentation steeping, the juice was warmed and fermented with wild yeast, and the caps hand-plunged twice 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 12% were new. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation during 16 months maturation, before it was bottled unfiltered.
