The grapes are hand picked from idyllic vineyards in the Awatere Valley and Upper Wairau Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand. The soils are ancient river beds with free draining stony soils and silty clay loams.
Vertical shoot positioned trellis was used with cordon spur pruning, providing an average of 4 tonnes per acre. 35% French Oak barrel aged, total maturation was for 10 months.
A warm summer punctuated by stints of wind and rain, resulted in good flavour development and structure.
