Vineyards and viticulture : This is a single vineyard wine from our Waihopai Vineyard. The vines are cane-pruned, cropped at a moderate level and were lightly leaf-plucked. The fruit condition at harvest was very good and the flavours were concentrated.
Winemaking: After gently pressing (the skins are discarded) the juice is fermented at low temperatures with a cultured yeast. The fermentation is stopped when we feel the sugar/acid balance to be perfect. Post fermentation, the wine is left to rest on lees for several months before being bottled here at the winery
Lime zest, orange blossom and subtle notes of white peach and honey result in an attractive, aromatic nose. The palate is crisp and dry with mouth-watering acidity and wonderful balance.
