Grapes - Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris
Region - Marlborough, New Zealand
Winemaking - Certified-organic grapes were hand-picked, sorted and pressed to small holding tanks. Once each variety was harvested, a juice blend was created from different portions of Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris. The juice blend was naturally fermented in 500 litre old French oak puncheons for four months. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation, and was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
What it tastes Like - This wine has a unique character, that is different from that of a wine blended post-ferment. The complex nose shows fruit, spice and floral notes. The palate is rich and textural.
