Description

  • Oaked
  • Nectarine
  • White peach
  • Textured

Pale straw in colour. Lifted nectarine and white peach aromas with a hint of toasty oak. Ripe stonefruit and subtle oak give way to a beautifully textured and generous palate. 

Sourced from their Waipara Walley Home Block Vineyard, which is a loam over free draining gravels site. 

Growing conditions were excellent, starting off with a frost-free spring. Good flowering and fruit set followed, supported by warm conditions. The hot and dry North Canterbury summer ripened the fruit exceptionally. At the time of picking, the fruit was clean, healthy and bursting with concentrated flavours.

Harvested in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was pressed immediately. The juice was left to settle until very clean, then racked, warmed and inoculated with a combination of wild and cultured yeasts, selected to enhance texture. Some juice was transferred to barrels to develop complexity, the rest as then transferred to stainless steel tanks to preserve 'brightness'. After two months of malolactic fermentation, the tanks and barrels were topped and stirred for a further two months. In late spring, the wine was blended, fined using natural methods and bottled. 

Food Pairing: Italian roast chicken and grilled courgette and capsicum salad.
