Vintage Summary

Marlborough experienced rather high rainfall during the growing season, resulting in high moisture levels throughout the vineyard. Dewy mornings combined with good crops created a sense of nervousness heading into vintage. However, the weather remained stable, which meant we could pick our fruit when desired and the concentration and health of the fruit was outstanding. The resulting wine is showing wonderful fruit concentration, with underlying purity and minerality.

Winemaking

Carefully selected parcels of Pinot Gris from our Awatere and Wairau Valley vineyards were used to craft this wine. At the winery, individual parcels of fruit were gently pressed and clarified. The clear juice was then fermented separately using a range of selected yeasts. A long, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks retained the vibrant, fresh characters. After fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised, and filtered in preparation for bottling.
