Reviews

“A blend of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah which were harvested and fermented separately. “Hui” means “gathering” and “Whero” is “red”. Smooth, supple red with cherry, raspberry and subtle fresh herb flavours. High energy wine with appealing acidity and soft tannins.”
89/100, Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, June 2016

Winemaking notes

Grown organically on our estate vineyards in Brightwater, these three noble grape varieties were hand harvested separately at optimum maturity. At receival to the winery these parcels were destemmed and batch fermented.
Hand plunging and extended skin contact allowed the gentle extraction of colour and supple tannins prior to pressing. Sixteen months in French oak allowed these wines to harmonize and a selective blend was created for bottling on 20 October 2015.
