Parcels of Pinot Gris were harvested individually over two weeks. The fruit was de-stemmed and pressed gently, separating the free run juice from the pressings. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours then racked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture and enhance the fruit flavours of pear, honey and stone fruit. Each parcel was fermented separately using a range of selected yeasts. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
Our Land Made wines tell the story of New Zealand’s leading wine regions from alluvial plains and windswept coastlines to spectacular mountain ranges. For this collection, our winemakers allow the land to tell its own story, skilfully combining individual parcels of fruit to produce wines that are reflective of their distinctive origin.
