Vintage Summary

This is the earliest harvest on record since our inception. There were late spring frosts in Marlborough and some challenging weather over the flowering period, which resulted in moderate crops throughout the
region. These moderate crops, coupled with a warm and stable end to the growing season, set us up for an early start with stunning fruit. We had clear warm days throughout March, so we could pick at our
leisure, without any pressure from the elements. The resulting Pinot Gris is focused, with lifted aromatics and a beautiful concentrated mouthfeel.

Winemaking

Selected parcels of Pinot Gris were individually harvested, de-stemmed and then gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours then racked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture and enhance the fruit flavours. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised, and then filtered prior to bottling.
