The grapes for this distinguished wine were grown exclusively in our highly regarded Mere Road (84%) and Trust Block (16%) Vineyards in the celebrated Gimblett Gravels district of Hawkes Bay. Hand-picked between 15th-24th April 2013 at 22° Brix, the grapes were destemmed, retaining whole berries, which were cold soaked for 2 days prior to fermentation.
