This wine is from grapes grown in our Riverview and Kinross vineyards in Hawkes Bay. The grapes for this wine were harvested and transported to our Riverview winery. The fruit was pressed into stainless steel fermentation vessels and inoculated with a range of yeast strains but principally “D254”. Following fermentation, the wine was inoculated for Malolactic fermentation and run off to barrel for maturation. The wine spent around 12 months in oak before being blended and tankered to our Katikati winery for finishing and bottling.
