Complex spicy fruit with floral over tones. Sustained flavour and with weight on the palate. This wine Is from our library collection. It is a bottle aged wine that is suitable for drinking now. It is a single vineyard wine from our Gimblett Gravels, certified organic vineyard.
Growing Season: The weather in spring was variable with cold periods in October. It was not until February 2010 that Hawke's Bay enjoyed consistently warm dry conditions. An Indian summer followed with little rainfall until May: excellent conditions for our fruit.
Technical details: The grapes were hand picked and destemmed. Fermentation was with wild yeast from the vineyard. The wine spent time macerating on its skins to achieve balance and then was pressed using a traditional basket press. During the winter and spring the wine components developed in oak barrels before being blended and then returned to oak to mature until ready to bottle. The wine was lightly fined with organic egg whites.
Blend- This wine is a blend of The Charve and the MS clones of Syrah.
Alcohol 12.7%, pH 3.61, TA 5.6g/l

Why Organic Wines?
Organic wines are made from grapes that are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides and fertilizers, which can be harmful to the environment and to human health. In addition, organic wine production often involves fewer energy inputs and can have a lower carbon footprint compared to conventional wine production.
