The grapes were harvested from the respective vineyards and transported to our Riverview winery where 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 of extended maceration. The wine was then pressed off the skins and some were put to barrel where it was aged for 12 months before blending with components that had been matured in stainless steel. The wine was then transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery for final blending and finishing. Bottling was in April 2021.

Aromas of dark summer fruits are supported by gentle oak and spice. The palate is soft and rich, exhibiting deep berry flavours, gentle tannins and great length.

ABV: 13%
