Ratings & Reviews
Vinification

The classic Provençal grape, Cinsault is a key component of this unique wine, as Cinsault grapes are a rarity in New Zealand. The fruit spends minimal time on skins after arriving at the winery to impart a delicate color. The wine is fermented exclusively in stainless steel to preserve freshness. Then, the blend rests for 8 months on fine lees to achieve maximum complexity and texture before bottling.
