Vineyard
This Pinot Noir from the 2018 vintage is a blend of premium
vineyards in the in the southern Wairau Valley (78%) and
Awatere Valley (22%) of Marlborough. The unique
mesoclimates in these valleys, combined with an unwavering
attention to detail in the vineyards, consistently produces
fruit of the highest quality.
Winemaking
Parcels of grapes were harvested and cold-soaked at 10°C
between five and 10 days before the onset of fermentation.
Ferments were hand plunged, allowing gentle extraction of
flavour and aroma compounds. Some batches were hot
fermented to contribute density, structure and savoury
complexity to the final wine, while others were fermented at
lower temperatures to emphasise fruit characters, purity and
elegance. The young wines were pressed and run to French
barrique (10% new and balance seasoned) where malolactic
fermentation took place in spring. Extended maturation on
lees has added depth and complexity to the final wine.
Vintages
The 2018 growing season started with an excellent spring and flowering period which was
followed by a long spell of hot weather with regular rainfall events through the summer months.
With ample soil moisture, our harvest started earlier than the previous two vintages, luckily the
cooler autumn weather helped retain natural acidities as the season progressed. Despite the
challenges in the season due to intermittent rainfall events, the winery team are delighted with
the quality and flavours of the wines this year.
