Gorgeous little citrus flowers link arms with melon and peach to dance in the sunshine, always maintaining an air of class. Meanwhile, lime lingers in the shadows vying for attention.

Vineyard
This aromatic white wine grape, hailing from Spain and
Northern Portugal, also performs exceedingly well in
Gisborne.
Winemaking
The fruit was picked and gently pressed to stainless steel
tanks. 85% of the clear juice was racked and fermented with
yeast selected to highlight the lovely aromatics and texture
of this exciting variety. The remaining 15% of the juice was
run to seasoned French Oak Puncheons for a natural
fermentation which adds complexity and richness to the
wine.
Vintages
The 2019 harvest was one of the finest on record. Spring was
cool and wet and the weather over key flowering periods
seemed unkind at the time. Crops were eventually down as
much as 25%, but this alone does not explain the quality of
the fruit at harvest. Summer was fine and warm with
intermittent rain keeping a drought prone province green,
the vines seemingly never under any stress. Veraison though had proceeded quickly over a fine
spell of weather which would give consistency to the ripeness of berries. Harvest arrived slightly
early but no records were broken here. In fact it seemed very much a normal harvest until we
approached our first pick. The berries though had developed abnormally thick skins blessed with
an abundance of colour and flavour. This coupled with a spell of fine weather over harvest period,
allowed us to pick when full ripeness had been achieved. Both whites and reds have excelled.
