Eighteen parcels Sauvignon Blanc and two of Semillon are sourced off three estate vineyards. The fully certified organic fruit is hand picked off two biodynamically managed terroirs, the upper terraces of Noa vineyard, on Waimakiriri soils of alluvial origin, the balance from Raupo Creek where soils are rich and clay based. Twenty different batches are pressed and separately handled to provide a range of options when determining the final wine. Most are treated to a wild indigenous yeast vinification, some parts are richly fermented in a selection of seasoned French oak barriques. After eight months, components are tasted and assembled into an exquisite, elegant style.
Light citrus/ straw in colour. Aromas of grapefruit and lime are underpinned by a chalky mineral complexity. The palate is finely textured with characters of gooseberry, zesty citrus and mineral flavours combined with a slight creaminess. A firm acidity helps to draw out the finish. Drinking well now as it continues to develop great concentration with evolving truffle and caramel characters.
