Vineyards and Winemaking
The 2017 Gisborne season was characterised by a very warm and dry summer followed by some significant March rain events. The loose clustered Albariño variety handled the conditions admirably to achieve full ripeness whilst maintaining excellent condition at harvest. Naturally low yields facilitated
optimum flavour development.
FRUIT HANDLING: A combination of machine harvesting followed by crushing, pressing and handpicking and then whole bunch pressing.
FERMENTATION: Fermented in stainless steel tanks at 15 degrees C. with several cultured aromatic yeast strains.
91 points - Lots of varietal character, although the flavour concentration is dialled down. A weighty texture and subtle spice provide an elegant finish.Decanter Magazine
