““When there’s a serious need to celebrate, a bottle of this should be chilled and ready to go at a moments notice. This shows off Hawke’s Bay fruit, which is that peach, roasted, stone fruit. It’s some very exciting stuff. It gives a really big flourish on the palate at first, it’s quite explosive and then it settles down with flavors of white peach.” – Cameron Douglas, MS

Winemaker's Notes

Handpicked fruit was stored and chilled overnight to 4 degrees Celsius before it was gently whole-bunch pressed to around 550 litre/tonne of juice. The juice was settled, then racked and fermented and warm temperatures to subdue primary fruit and enhance texture and mouthfeel in the finished wine. The wine was stored on lees with occasional stirring over winter until undergoing MLF in spring. The wine was light sulphured before it was tirage bottled pre-harvest 2012. The bottles were aged for 42 months on lees at around 12 degrees to develop flavour complexity and richness before disgorging in winter, 2015.

Osawa Wines

It all started one sunny afternoon in Tokyo when Mr. Osawa, a Japanese wine lover, decided to go travelling with the intention of starting a vineyard and making his own wines. He selected America, Australia and New Zealand as potential areas of interest. A year and many miles later, Mr. Osawa arrived in New Zealand and decided that this is where he would like to make his wine.
