WINE NOTES: A bright fruited, expressive nose, with notes of dark cherry, juniper berry and an intriguing hint of fennel and manuka flower. There is a savoury taste with firm tannins and ripe fruit finishing with a lively mineral edge to balance. Unfined. Unfiltered. Enjoy, with friends, lamb and other fine grilled pieces. Cellaring potential is five years from release
AWARDS / REVIEWS:
VINIFICATION: A selection of specific slopes and planting comprise our decision as to where to source the fruit from for this wine. The soils are dense clay over sandstone, including the surrounding manuka scrubs nearby, giving fruit of smallish bunches and moderate vigour. The grapes are harvested by hand, chilled, sorted and de-stemmed uncrushed into small wooden cuves for prolonged fermentation using natural yeasts. Pressing takes place after one lunar phase – 28 days where the wine rests for a time more until being put to barrel.
