Waihopai Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand
Hand harvested off of a single block. 10 days on skins to enhance color, but with only 2-3 pumpovers to minimize tannin extraction and maintain a juicy, fresh style to the wine. Gravity drained into stainless steel to complete the first fermentation. Bottled with about 10g/l RS for the second fermentation in bottle. No SO2.
Winemakers: Peter and James MacDonald
