2020 sets a new benchmark for tricky seasons. A wet, cold and windy spring introduced our growing season, these conditions continued through our key flowering and fruit set periods in October and December - impacting our potential yields for the season. Disturbed weather patterns continued right through January, and whilst the weather settled in February it was not its usual scorching self. We experienced cool periods through both veraison and ripening; delaying and then slowing down our harvest.
The grapes for this wine come from our vineyards in Central Otago’s Cromwell basin. The fruit was harvested throughout April in excellent condition. The fruit was processed in a reductive manner, with the juice settled overnight and racked clean the following morning. The wine was fermented cool, to help maximise varietal character. The wine was stop fermented in an off-dry style to provide palate weight and texture. The wine wasn’t fined before being filtered and bottled.
