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

All grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Using only free run juice from light pressing, the juice is settled for 24 hours and racked cloudy to a mixture of seasoned oak and stainless steel barrels for fermentation with cultured yeast. In spring spontaneous malolatic fermentation takes place after which the wine is blended and bottled, matured on yeast lees for 3.5 years and finally disgorged.

 

 

NV Brut

Full of personality, the generous, non-vintage (5*) released in 2016 is a blend of Marlborough and Central Otago base wines, fermented initially in old oak and stainless steel barrels. Disgorged after three and a half years on its yeast lees, it is pale straw, with a fine, persistent 'bead'. The bouquet is fragrant, yeasty and biscuity; the palate rich, lively and appetisingly crisp, with strong, peachy, citrusy, biscuity, yeasty flavours, showing excellent complexity and richness, and a dryish (6 grams/litre residual sugar), finely balanced finish. 5 stars – Michael Cooper’s Buyers Guide 2016
