Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"White gold or straw with a gentile haze. Aromas of pear, lemon zest, quince, lanolin and dry hay. The palate is dense, full and structural, with soft fruit and lacy acidity. An impression of clay with spice, baked apple and a honey suckle finish. A full bodied expressive Home Chenin Blanc

The 2016 Black Estate Home Chenin Blanc was grown on our 12 hectare Home Vineyard located 6 kilometres north east of the Waipara Junction, in the Omihi sub-district of Waipara Valley, North Canterbury. This is a north facing sedimentary clay fan on a gentle hill side slope. The soils are mainly Awapuni clay with calcium carbonate deposits. The Chenin Blanc vineyard that sits in the belly of the slope above the original vineyard is 0.5 hectares. Chenin Blanc clones 880 and 220 grow on root stock and are planted at 6133 vines per hectare in 2011 by the Naish Family.

100% foot crushed. Whole bunch pressed using a basket press over twelve hours. Juice drained directly to barrique and fermented using a Home vineyard yeast starter. 100% barrel fermentation and maturation. 100% Malolactic fermentation. Unfined and unfiltered."
