Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Lemon in colour with flecks of gold. Concentrated complexity on the nose with barbequed corn husk, white peach and bran. Palate is precise with exotic spice balanced with fruit and a lengthy mineral spine.

Organically grown on deep, fine textured Awapuni clay soils. Five clones were planted in 1993 and remain on their own roots. Vines are now of an age where they self-regulate low crop loads, leading to intensely flavoured berries. A long, warm ripening period produced ripe skins and seeds, and small, clean, super concentrated berries with rich phenolics. Individual rows were handpicked during cool autumn mornings.

Whole bunch pressed to 500L French oak puncheons for hands-off and natural fermentation lasting many months followed by malo-lactic fermentation through the following summer. At 11 months, each puncheon was blended together for bottling without fining on-site. Drinking well now to 2025."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Certified organic, the elegant, youthful 2015 vintage was hand-picked from 22-year-old vines and fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak puncheons (15 per cent new). Light lemon/green, it is weighty, with rich stone-fruit and spice flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak, fresh acidity, and strong personality. Best drinking 2018+."
