2020 – “Our single vineyard wine is elegant and intense, creamy and full of fruit. Lower yields, French yeast, long and very cold fermentation and our version of battonage produce a wine of lush flavors, true eleance, varietal definition, classis Awatere minerality and a weightly mid palate. Later harvesting means more hang time in the long fall evenings and larger diurnal temperature differences, both of which help this wine develop its complex palette.”- From the Winery. The Blind River Vineyard has naturally lower yields and cooler, windier climate. In the winery, low fermentation temperatures and careful monitoring and multiple daily tastings. Longer lees contact and mixing the lees through the wine regularly resulted in a full mouth feel and a broad richness.
