Out in the Vineyard…
On the back of NZ’s record breaking summer, the grapes were all in the winery 2-3 weeks ahead of normal (Great news for the late ripening Syrah!). Weather was mostly dry except for a couple of near miss cyclone events which made matters interesting by requiring a bit more leaf work than usual to combat any disease pressure. On the plus side this year has also yielded some beautiful late harvested botrytised Riesling for the first time since 2013. Right now..pruning about to kick off…as soon as the rain stops…
A highly aromatic Germanic-styled wine with a naturally lower level of alcohol and an off dry level of sweetness perfectly balanced with vibrant natural acidity. In line with our natural winemaking philosophy this wine has not been fined or cold stabilised
“Bright, even straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-gold hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly presented with pure white and yellow stonefruit aromas along with white florals and a subtle amalgam of nutty lees and oak hints, unfolding a little honeysuckle. This is delicate, but grows in depth and intensity with aeration.”
18+/20, Raymond Chan
