The grapes were harvested from our Tantallon vineyard and transported to our Riverview winery were they were crushed to open topped stainless steel fermentation vessels and inoculated with a range of yeast strains. The ferments were pumped over several times per day until dry and then allowed from 2 to 5 days extended maceration. The wine was then pressed off the skins and some was put to barrel where it was aged for 12 -24 months. The wine was then transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery for final blending and finishing. Bottling was in November 2018.

Tasting note

Complex, ripe and intriguing. Layers of black pepper, lavender and vanilla give this wine a memorable aroma. The palate has lovely fruit weight, fine tannins with vanilla bean and raspberry carrying through a long finish.

Alc: 13%
