Production

Variety:

65% Merlot, 35% Tempranillo

Region

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

Season:

The 2020 growing season will be a year to remember.  Record-breaking drought periods from January through to April, meant veraison occurred roughly two weeks earlier than previous vintages.  Over harvest the weather was warm and settled allowing for natural grape acidity to be maintained, development of flavour and perfect conditions for harvest.  As a result, there is an abundance of exceptionally high-quality, deliciously ripe fruit across all varieties.

Harvest:

Hand picked 20 March 2020

Vinification:

The fruit was destemmed before being gently pressed to stainless tanks.  The juice was settled, inoculated with aromatic yeast and then fermented cold to preserve and enhance aromatics. At the end of fermentation the wine was stabilized, fined and bottled while still young and fresh.
