Vineyards and Winemaking
The 2018 blend is a combination of Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley vineyards, on a mixture of clay, silt and stony soils. The fruit was harvested in a very compact timeframe of 6 days in mid-March. The
majority of the blend was fermented and matured in oak barriques and oak puncheons using a mixture of wild and cultured yeasts.
