Production

Variety:

Predominantly Tempranillo

Region

Onetangi Valley, Obsidian Vineyard, Waiheke Island, Auckland, NZ

Season:

A settled and early summer resulted in an exceptional fruit set and clean growing conditions throughout the vineyard. This was followed with a persistent period of near drought conditions from mid-summer to autumn.
Temperatures were in the normal range, but rainfall was very low with the island experiencing only a third of the year previous. These conditions allowed fruit to reach optimal ripeness. As a result, 2019 will be fondly recalled as a vintage that produced an abundance of high-quality wines.

Harvest:

Hand picked 28 February 2019

Vinification:

The fruit was destemmed before being gently pressed to stainless tanks where it was fermented cold to preserve and enhance aromatics. At dryness the wine was stablised and bottled while still young and fresh.

Analysis:

Winemaker: Michael Wood
Alcohol: 13.0%
