Reviews

“It is elegantly expressed on the nose showing lemon peel, white stone fruit, jasmine and subtle spice notes. The palate delivers delicate fruit intensity and fine texture, well supported by linear mouthfeel and bright acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering. Delightfully crisp-dry.”
90/100, 4.5 stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017

“Partly oak-aged, this is a weighty, fleshy wine, with strong youthful peachy flavours that show considerable complexity, a slightly creamy texture and a harmonious, fully dry finish.”
(4 star) Michael Cooper, NZ Listener 17 -23 March 2018

Winemaking notes

The fruit for this wine was sourced entirely from the certified organic Winery Block vineyard in Brightwater, Nelson. It is made from selectively hand-picked Pinot Blanc harvested on 30 March 2016 at 22.6ºBrix.
The grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice allowed to settle. Both a stainless steel tank and barriques were used for fermentation – 70% of the ferment took place in tank and the remainder in both oak and acacia barriques.
After fermentation was complete, the wine was aged on gross lees for 8 months. The blended wine was then filtered and bottled on 20 March 2017.
