Winemaker's Notes

The grapes for this distinguished wine were grown exclusively in our highly regarded Mere Road and Trust Block Vineyards in the celebrated Gimblett Gravels district of Hawkes Bay. Hand picked, the grapes were destemmed, retaining whole berries, which were cold soaked for 2 days prior to fermentation.
