VINEYARD AND WINEMAKING NOTES

In summary Hawke’s Bay 2015 was a 3rd exceptional vintage in a row. Long hot days provided a great platform in which 2015 wines will be remembered.

Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed, and wild fermented in French Oak barrels for 15 months.  A selection of our finest barrels was blended displaying a rich structured wine capturing our unique soil expression from the Esk Valley.
