Description

Soil is windblown sands and silts.  A season of hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of ripe clean fruit still holding good acidity.  Grown on 16 year old vines and in windblown sands and silts soil.  Estate grown grapes from Aurum’s organic Te Wairere vineyard in Lowburn, near Cromwell, Central Otago. Low cropping grapes for this wine were hand harvested in April 2016 after long slow ripening.

The grapes were mostly destemmed, cold soaked for 5 days and fermented in open vats with wild yeasts. The wine was matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. Unfined and unfiltered.

Alcohol 13.5%
Bottled July 2017
