Growing Season: 2015 was the third of three consecutive years of excellent growing conditions in Hawke's Bay. The spring was cool and vine flowering was a little later than usual. The weather remained cool through December but after New Year the hot dry weather typical of Hawke's Bay began and continued until we harvested in late April.
Technical details: The grapes were hand picked and destemmed. Fermentation was with wild yeast from our vineyard. The wine spent sometime macerating on its skins to achieve balance and was then pressed using a traditional basket press. During Winter and Spring the wine developed in oak barrels and before racking and return to barrel to mature and then be bottled. The wine was lightly fined with organic egg whites.
