Winemaker's notes

decor wave

Parcels of Pinot Gris were harvested individually over a ten day period. 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, stablised and filtered prior to bottling.

Vineyard

Seaview

Our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit  avours. The cool site regularly commences harvest up to one week later than other sub regions. All three of these aromatic varieties sit on sheltered, north facing slopes. The soil is predominantly windblown loess.
