The fruits of each vineyard were harvested, crushed and soaked for a time in skins to extract the aromatic flavor for fermentation, which was cold in stainless steel. The 2019 harvest was hot and early. This allowed a good development of flavour in our vineyards and Gewürztraminer, in particular, was harvested very ripe and with exciting flavours. This wine is composed of mixed plots from two different vineyards in Waipara and Hawkes Bay, each contributing characteristics of aroma and taste. Limited to existing stock. In case the wine you bought is out of stock, we will contact you to propose a different wine, or to return the amount paid. Promotions on wines cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons.
