It is the Vit-Ecologist’s challenge to produce the best flavours and then the Winemaker’s challenge to capture those flavours in the wines. So we pick on sweetness, balance, flavour, colour, condition of the grapes and vines and, of course, we check the weather.
We just observe the basic good principles of winemaking. We keep the flavours in the juice and then ferment with carefully controlled conditions. Then we maintain these flavours in the wine and enhance them; in the case of Pinot Noir we use the very best of French oak barriques. Nothing too complicated. This lets you know what flavours the Central Hawke’s Bay limestone land can produce.
