Production Notes

100% Marlborough with 78% from the Southern Valleys and 22% from Ward. Both vineyards are clay based hillside blocks with scattered clonal planting. As always, winemaking was very hands on for this wine. Hand picked fruit was destemmed and transferred to open top fermenters for at least a 5 day cold soak. When signs of natural fermentation were obvious, the tanks were warmed, allowing fermentation to get into full swing. The ferments were plunged a maximum of twice daily until dry, before an extended maceration on skins for up to 7 days. Once pressed, the wines were run to French oak barriques (15% new) for natural malolactic fermentation and maturation for a total of 10 months.
