    Fruit for this wine was produced from premium Hawkes Bay vineyards, predominantly Keltern, Kokako, and Lyons. The soil type and climate of each site have contributed particular characters to the final wine. The warm summer of 2017 allowed early picking at good flavour ripeness. Picking decisions were based on flavour and natural acid balance allowing the wines to express intensity and purity of fruit with fine definition and length on the palate.

    Juices from gently pressed grapes were partially settled before being racked with light lees to French oak barriques (20% new) for natural and inoculated fermentation. Following this, some batches went through natural malolactic fermentation to balance out the natural acidity. Oak barrels were selected for their subtle flavour and aroma profile, adding complexity gained from 10 months maturation on lees. Sensitive winemaking has allowed site and season to be reflected, supporting the defined, complex and elegant style of this wine.
