Sustainably Crafted

Rich, inky, dark plum coloured wine with intense aromas of cherry, cranberries and raspberry, complemented by an earthy herbal note. The sumptous palate offers baked rhubarb, damson plums and savoury notes, with a strong backbone of chalky fine drying tannins and focused acidity. It’s nicely integrated, complex, with excellent balance and persistent length - Simply stunning!

Vineyard Sites

Cocooned by mountains on all sides, the Waitaki Valley wine-growing region lies 40km inland from the Pacific Ocean on the southern flanks of the Waitaki River. Our warm northwest sloping vineyard consists of ancient white limestone soils inter-layered with river gravels, allowing grapes to truly ripen in this southerly latitude.

Vinification

Harvested, crushed and then fermented in small batches in oak cuves to add complexity. The ferments are hand plunged, skin contacted post-fermentation, gently pressed and then aged in a 20/80 blend of new/old French oak barriques for ten months before blending and bottling in late summer.
