The grapes for this wine were grown in our Omaka Valley Vineyard of Marlborough. A long and dry summer led to perfect ripening conditions and resulted in fruit with excellent aromatics, intense flavour and great retention of natural acidity.

We harvested the fruit at night in cool temperatures to preserve the wonderful flavours and aromatics. The grapes were gently pressed and the juice settled prior to fermentation. 10% was fermented in barrel to accentuate texture and complexity in the wine. The remainder was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to retain the bright, varietal aromatics
