Winemaking and Viticulture

2015 was a warm season in Hawkes Bay with a typically dry late summer and early autumn.

The wine was transferred to small French oak barrels of which 35 % were new. After 16 months in barrel, the wine was blended and bottled in October 2016.

The result is a wine with exotically perfumed aromatics that include ripe blackberries and red fruits plus hints of florals and dried herbs. There is superb clarity of flavours on the palate.
