Berliner Wein Trophy - GOLD
IWSC - SILVER
A bright, luminous pale golden green in the glass, it displays aromas of passionfruit, fresh citrus, and currant-leaf on the nose. The concentrated palate is layered with sweet tropical fruit, herbal notes and a touch of zesty minerality - leading to a pure and focused dry finish.
Each individual block in our Awatere Valley vineyard is carefully monitored for optimum sugar and acid levels, with a dedicated harvesting crew on hand ready to pick when these levels are met. Once at the winery the grapes are pressed into stainless steel tanks for cold settling, before being gently racked and inoculated with select yeasts chosen to naturally enhance the aromatic and flavour profiles of the wine. Fermentation is carried out at cool temperatures allowing the wine to retain its aromas; with each batch fermentation typically lasting around 21 days. After fermentation is complete the wines are left to settle on their yeast lees for a short period before being racked again into stainless steel tanks for maturation. Meticulous classification of each batch results in a final blend that truly captures the exceptional characteristics of our vineyard. Once blended the resulting wine is stabilised and filtered – without the need for fining, and bottled in late July to capture freshness in the bottle.
