The 2009 vintage in Marlborough was of exceptional quality. The flowering and fruit set took place in perfect weather and a sound spring and early summer set the vintage on the right path. Mid summer temperatures were below the average Growing Degree Days which helped preserve acidity and ensure a long ripening period - ideal for flavour development. Late February saw some uncharacteristic rain leading to what we've come to expect as the typical Marlborough autumn - fresh cool nights and sunny cloudless days meaning we were able to harvest the fruit at optimum flavour ripeness in early April. The majority of fruit came from low yielding vineyards in the Wairau Valley. The grapes were machine harvested early in the morning to preserve their flavour then destemmed, crushed and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact. The clear juice was then fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent fruit flavours. Following fermentation the wine was left on lees and to enhance texture and complexity for 3 months before being prepared for bottling.
