Winemaker's Notes

Vineyard - From a selection of growers in the Nelson Region

Soil -  Predominantly Moutere clay

Vintage Conditions - It was a challenging growing season. A longer than average flowering period with a cooler summer temperatures.  Harvest started later than usual but with careful vineyard management the fruit was looking great. So we decided to make our first Fumé Blanc.

Harvest Date - Early April 2017

Fermentation / Maturation - Our 2017 Fume Blanc is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes sourced from a small selection of our best cuvees that came in over the vintage. Ferments were carried out in a selection of older French Oak barrels and some new oak barrels to add complexity to the final wine which was bottled later in the season to give the wine its finished intensity.

Tasting Notes - “Beautifully composed and styled, this oak-aged sauvignon shows lifted aromas of nectarine, green rockmelon, snow pea and lime zest aromas with a hint of oatmeal complexity. The palate is wonderfully weighted and intensely flavoured, delivering loads of tasty flavours backed by bright acidity” Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
