WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

The Mound Vineyard, Waipara Valley, has gravelly loams of alluvial subsoil and free draining soils.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

Bud break was late September early October followed by a settled and warm spring without any frost set backs. The plants enjoyed good growth. We went into an early flower set, the earliest on our records and also one of the best. The summer and ripening season were dry and cool. Through the growing season we had 230mm of rain, the hottest month was December with an average temperature of 18 degrees Celsius.

GRAPE VARIETY

100% Riesling

MATURATION

The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and only the free run juice was cold settled and racked a few days later. The cool fermentation was started with cultured yeast to add just the right amount of freshness and complexity. After fermentation the wines were again cold settled and racked shortly after. The wine was prepared for bottling using natural fining methods.
