Viticultural Practices

The vines are on well-drained sandy gravels and planted to a high density of 3,000 per hectare.  They were hand-thinned to reduce the crop-load to under 3kg a vine and enhance depth of flavour. Two different clones 2/15 and Lincoln Berry Smith add complexity to the wines.  This is a single estate vineyard from our Weka Gravels site.

Wine Making Details

The grapes were machine harvested,  pressed to tank and cold-settled. Clear juice was racked off and then inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation was in stainless steel with cooling control for a fruit driven style. Fermentation was stopped early to leave some residual sugar. The wine spent four months on yeast lees before blending.
