About the 2015 Orchard Pinot Blanc

Vineyard & Region

Orchard Vineyard, Rapaura, Wairau Plains, Marlborough.

Tasting Note

There's not much Pinot Blanc in New Zealand let alone Marlborough, so we are chuffed to release this rare beauty. Aromas of pear, florals & toasty almonds, the wine has a beautifully concentrated palate, creamy in the middle & laced with flavours of Meyer lemon & nut. Allan says "This is a gentle giant, which will develop more complex character with age"

Technical:             Alc 14%      T.A. 4.1g/l      pH 3.44     R.S. 1.3g/L

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 and incorporating some biodynamic principles we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.

Winemaking

Hand harvested whole bunch pressed, using free run juice only, the juice is lightly settled then fermented predominantly in stainless steel with cultured yeast - 20% of the juice went into 2 year old puncheons to ferment naturally.
