Bone dry, rippled with minerality and tannins. This wine is at the crossroads of a red wine for its tannins and texture, a cool climate white wine for its intense minerality and a barrel fermented white wine for its charming oxidative notes. Preservative and additives free.

DESCRIPTION:

APPEARANCE – Clear amber/orange colour.

BOUQUET – Spiced honey, dried nectarines and pears.

PALATE – Bone dry, rippled with minerality and tannins. This wine is at the crossroads of a red wine for its tannins and texture, a cool climate white wine for its intense minerality and a barrel fermented white wine for its charming oxidative notes.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS:

LOCATION – 45 Degrees South.
Low cropping estate grown grapes for this wine were hand harvested in April from Aurum’s Te Wairere vineyard in the Lowburn area of Central Otago.

CLIMATE – A long warm autumn with hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of fruit still holding good acidity.

SOILS – Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.

VINE AGE – 12 – 17 year old vines

TRELLIS STYLE – VSP

WINEMAKERS COMMENTS:
This wine is made using ancient techniques. The grapes underwent fermentation with their skins. After an extensive post maceration of 4 months, the wine was drained through a muslin cloth and aged for 12 months. The wine was then hand bottled, unfined and unfiltered.

Preservative free, 100% grapes.

Alcohol: 13.5% alc by vol
