“Our distinctive hillside vineyard above the Waihopai Valley was planted in 2000 with a European approach; close vine spacing and high density (approx. 5,000/ha). We manage the vineyard according to principles of biodynamics and organics. The first to be planted in New Zealand, our Petit Manseng is on a spectacular slope facing northwest. The 2015 growing season was early for both bud burst and flowering and to ensure fruit quality, we shoot thinned in November, green harvested and removed laterals prior to veraison. A late ripening variety, we hand picked our 2015 Petit Manning on the 20th April. The distinctively golden hued berries had an average brix of 26.7 balanced by 12.1 g/l TA. The Petit Manseng has a complex, aromatic bouquet of spiced ripe baked quince with an intriguing background of lanolin and aromatic honey. In the mouth the wine starts medium sweet but ends quite dry. The palate is complex and layered with fine direction towards the tight crisp and mineral like acidity on the finish.”
