A warm summer allowed the grapes to ripen perfectly and the cool Marlborough nights harnessed the acidity to give definition to the wine. Harvested in the early hours of the morning to preserve fruit purity. The grapes were slowly and gently pressed. After a cool, long fermentation the wine was aged on fine lees for 6 weeks to allow the natural weight of the wine to develop.
This wine is 100% sustainably produced and vegan friendly. It has been crafted carefully for greater length while retaining true Awatere Valley finesse and elegance.
With distinctive herbaceous aromatics and fresh acidity, the palate shows stonefruit, passionfruit and citrus with a hint of minerality.
Spontaneous co-fermented on skins. Pressed once dry, put to barrel for 9 months, 70% malo. Racked, settled, bottled un-fined and un-filtered. This ain’t orange, it has been placed in a time capsule with preservative.
