Winemaker's Notes

The 2008 growing season started quite well with little or no frost. Mild temperatures during bloom favored a generous crop set. A warm, even summer continued and ripened grapes with more restrained herbaceous character and more forward tropical fruit. Even though late March rains created a bit of havoc, harvest proceeded and yields are up over 20%.

Tasty components from both the Wairau River Valley and the neighboring Awatere helped create diversity in this blend. Depending on exposure and soil structure, which ranged from rocks and pebbles to sand and clay, different parcels contributed citrus, lemon zest, nettles, pineapple-tropical fruit, and white currant, with a touch of minerality.
