Viticulture

Our aim in the vineyard is to grow the best fruit we can so it can speak of its home and express its personality. To do this you need healthy vines and soil. By practicing organics we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.

Winemaking

In Central Otago? Yes, and it’s a lot of fun. This is not the bigger style of Tempranillo you may find from Spain, but expressive of our vineyard and region. The grapes were hand harvested de-stemmed to French cuves, then fermented with indigenous yeast. After fermentation the wine was transferred to seasoned French oak barrels for malolatic fermentation and matured for 12 months prior to blending egg white fining and bottling.
