Viticulture
• From Sustainable Production, accredited by
      Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand

• Vegan Wine, certified by the New Zealand Vegetarian Society

Weather Conditions: Spring and summer were hot and extremely dry, enhancing great flavours in our grapes. Rain set in just one week before harvest, making for anxious times. Luckily the fine weather returned for another 2 weeks – just long enough to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.

• 100% estate-grown fruit
• Moutere clay soil with a layer of sandy loam
• Clone Sauvignon Blanc MS

• Hand-harvested and hand-sorted on 31 March

 

gentle winemaking:  Whole bunch pressed, gravity-fed from press area to main winery, cool fermentation, extended lees contact, minimal pumping, filtration in a single pass from cloudy to sterile, no fining pre-bottling

• Oak-ageing for 9% of the wine to add complexity
• 4g/ltr natural residual sugar
• Bottled on 28 July in light-weight bottles to reduce our carbon footprint
• 13.5% alcohol
