Vineyard

Awatere Valley Marlborough, New Zealand. Blocks: Araroa, Moana, Rotokaro, Taumauri & Tohu. Planted 2002. 19.22 ha. Loam soils varying from shallow to deep silt and fine sand.

Vinification

• hand-harvested grapes gently destemmed then chilled for seven days in open top vessels • warmed for a fast ferment; the wine was pressed directly into dedicated Pinot Noir French oak barriques for the winter • malolactic fermentation once the temperatures started to warm again in spring • rigorous blending and barrel section, with the final blend left to settle for a few more months before being bottled without the need for fining or filtration
