WINEMAKERS’ NOTES

We think  the best wines are produced when kaitiakitanga is expressed purely and our job is to harness this natural expression. Capturing the natural personality of its surroundings without too much interference is what we strive for vintage upon vintage. Grapes are carefully crushed and unclarified juice is sent to French barrel to begin a wild fermentation. The two barrels were innoculated with our signature yeast blend. Post ferment this wine was held on lees and went through a natural malolactic ferment. Other than lees stirring at controlled cellar temperatures between 13 to 16°C this little gem has had very little winemaking intervention allowing the vintage to tell its own story. Single vineyard
