Background

Production Notes: A minimal approach to winemaking was taken with these single vineyard wines. At harvest, parcels of fruit were carefully selected from the Wakefield Downs Vineyard in the Awatere Valley. The fruit was quickly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain aromatics particular to this unique site. The individual parcels were assessed, blended and lightly fined before bottling.
