The fruit for this wine was sourced from our home vineyard in Opaki, and from the Manu vineyard to the west of Masterton. The grapes were left on the vines late into the autumn so as to develop the high sugar levels and botrytis saturation necessary to make the style of wine we wanted.


The fruit for this wine was hand-picked and then pressed, with a small portion being left to soak on the skins overnight. The juice was then transferred for fermentation with aromatic yeasts, two thirds in a stainless steel tank, with the remaining third of the juice being put into older French oak barrels, where they underwent a further 5 months of aging. The wine was then lightly fined, and blended together in preparation for bottling.
