Vintage Conditions

While it will be forever remembered as the Covid harvest, an excellent summer throughout most of the country has contributed to an outstanding vintage for New Zealand’s wine regions.

Vinification details

100% Martinborough hand harvested fruit has been open top fermented. After a total vat time of 16 days the wine was pressed off and barrel aged for 11 months. Bottled without filtration,  structure and texture sit perfectly with ripe fruit flavours and gentle tannins.
