Vintage Notes

The 2023 growing season in Central Otago was vastly different to the rest of the country. We came out of a mild, wet winter to a warm and unusually still spring which meant strong shoot growth and fruit set. Post flowering, the summer heat increased, and Cromwell experienced it’s hottest January on record. We started picking in the middle of March however, a blast of cold weather from the south during the first week of April put a welcome handbrake on ripening which meant the majority of our grapes developed more flavour and tannin ripeness. We finished harvesting in mid-May, making it a longer vintage with excellent quality 

The grapes were harvested towards the end of the season at optimal ripeness. The juice was settled overnight and then racked clean for fermentation. The wine was fermented with cultured yeast at cool temperature to retain varietal expression, encourage texture and mouthfeel without compromising flavour richness. We stopped the fermentation when we felt the wine had reached an ideal sugar and acidity balance. The wine was then lightly fined and filtered before bottling.

Vegan friendly.
