Vintage 2022 was an exciting classic Marlborough vintage. A warm Spring secured good fruit set throughout the region. Some challenging weather in February was rewarded with clear warm days throughout harvest. The cool crisp nights and warm days in March retained vibrant acidity while allowing flavors to develop fully. A slow and steady ripening resulted in beautifully intense and structured wines.

 

The resulting wine is showing the wonderful hallmarks that our Marlborough vineyards are known for – highly concentrated fruit flavors, with underlying
purity and minerality.

The grapes were harvested in ideal condition, picking the terraced blocks at the point of optimum flavor development. Parcel of grapes were picked and fermented separately, allowing us to enhance varietal character using carefully selected yeast strains.

 

A long, cool fermentation took place to retain purity of flavors. The wine was then blended, stabilized and filtered prior to bottling.
