The best grapes are selected from a small parcel of north facing vines tucked out of the wind near
Waiheke’s Whakanewha Regional Park.
Growing conditions were almost perfect throughout the year, and whilst not as hot as 2019/2020, fruit was picked a few weeks earlier than the previous years. These conditions allowed fruit to reach optimal ripeness with no weather stress experienced. As a result, 2021 will be remembered as a vintage that produced extremely high-quality fruit.
By hand in late February.
The fruit was gently whole bunch pressed to French oak barriques (25% new). Following a period of lees contact the wine was racked, blended and bottled.
An elegant, pale gold in the glass. The palate is multi-layered and complex with spice, nuts, stone fruit and green apple with great acidity and a fine-grained texture. The finish is clean and refined.
