Our low yielding Pinot Noir blocks were harvested at optimum ripeness. Individual parcels were kept separate and inoculated with selected yeasts. A fast, hot fermentation proceeded with delicate plunging to craft a wine with elegance and balance.
After a short period of post ferment maceration to achieve the desired tannin balance, the parcels were gently pressed. The wine was aged with French oak while undergoing malolactic fermentation. It was then blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
Willow Flat & Seaview vineyards
Our Seaview Vineyard is the most coastal vineyard in New Zealand and experiences some fairly harsh conditions as a result. It produces small, thick-skinned berries with intense flavours. In comparison, our Willow Flat Vineyard is further inland with reduced coastal influences, and creates a much sweeter fruit.
Leave the land better than we found it
At Yealands, we aim to leave the land better than we found it. We achieve this through a wide range of initiatives and on-going projects including developing wetlands, making our own special compost and using natural pest control measures in our vineyard.
