Background

The fruit is grown on the Belsham Awatere Estate. Densely planted, the vine yields are minimised and the fruit is meticulously hand tended. Harvested between 23.5 and 25.5°Brix, the fruit was hand picked and cooled to 4°C. Following de-stemming and an extended cold maceration, the must was warmed and fermented in small open-topped oak and stainless vessels. At dryness, the wine was drained and the skins gently pressed following which the individual batches were matured in tightgrained French oak barriques for 10 months. The final barrel selection was blended, eggwhite fined and bottled in March 2010
