Description

"Certified biodynamic, the very classy 2017 vintage (5*) was estate-grown at Bendigo, hand-harvested and fermented and lees-aged in tanks. Bright, light lemon/green, it is highly scented and mouthfilling, with beautifully vibrant, well-ripened pear, lychee and spice flavours, showing excellent intensity, finely balanced acidity and a dry, lingering finish. It's already delicious" Michael Cooper

A fresh bouquet of pear and white peach is enhanced by a rich mouth-filling texture, dry with a mineral finish. A perfect match for all cuisine. Ageing 3 – 5 years.

This wine is from the BioGro certified organic and Demeter certified biodynamic estate vineyard located in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. The vineyard was planted in 1998 after careful site selection. The soils on the beautiful north facing slope are Waenga fine sandy loam and Letts steepland soil with an elevation of 217 - 264 metres, on 44.55° south.

Although the Central Otago summer was cooler and windier than usual the fruit proudly ripened as normal. The season resulted in smaller bunches and lower berry weight which lead to in the grapes being concentrated with very good structure and weight.

Hand-picked in ideal condition and ripeness on the 22nd of April. Whole bunch pressed, minimum settling followed by natural fermentation and aged on yeast lees for 10 months during which full malolactic fermentation occured. Bottled on the 8th March 2018.
