BRONZE MEDAL, 2019 NZ ORGANIC WINE AWARDS
Grown organically on our estate vineyards in Brightwater, these noble grape varieties were hand harvested separately in April and early May 2016 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. Ten months in French oak allowed these wines to harmonize and a selective blend was created.
Syrah dominates at 41%, with Merlot, Petit Verdot and a small amount of Pinot Noir adding their unique contribution. The wine was bottled on 20 March 2017.
Titratable acidity 5.57 g/l
