Product Description

This is our only estate white wine. We have one very difficult block on the farm — the bottom vineyard, just as you drive into our gate — that is quite different than every other block. Because it sits at a bottom of a steep slope as well as being very close to the river, it has a number of different geological influences: there are 11 different soil types in this 2-hectare block! Faced with this difficult situation, we tried to turn it into a positive and decided to plant a mix of varieties that could be picked together to make up one wine. All the grapes were picked on one day and pressed together. 40% was barrel fermented with natural yeasts in a mix of barrels with just a small portion (10%) being new. The balance was fermented in tank. Our thinking was to take two varieties that are rich and aromatic and blend them with two that have good natural acidity to keep the wine fresh.
