Vinification Details

The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed then pressed gently prior to cold settling for 72 hours. The clear juice was then racked off and each parcel was fermented separately using two different yeasts. A long cool fermentation followed to capture and enhance the fruit flavours of passionfruit, currant and thyme. The parcels were then kept on lees for a period of three months, with regular stirrings to help gain texture and structure.

History

Located in the southern Awatere Valley sub-region of Marlborough, Yealands Estate is arguably the most ambitious family-owned vineyard enterprise in New Zealand. Few could grasp the breadth of Peter Yealands' vision when he took on the challenge of creating terraced vineyards amongst these rolling foothills in the late 90s.

Regional Information

Located at the north eastern corner of New Zealand's South Island, Marlborough’s winegrowing region is bounded by the Pacific Ocean in the east and towering mountain ranges in the north and south. A broad alluvial plain stretches from the coastline, gradually rising into narrow valleys with favourable northerly aspects.
