An opulent potpourri evoking dates and sun-dried figs, Red Delicious apples and quince paste – intermingled with aromatic fragrances reminiscent of rosehip syrup and Middle-Eastern spices. A lavish interpretation of the variety that is richly flavoured with dried fruits and liquored oranges – concentrated, luscious and delicious.

The fruit for this wine was grown near Renwick at the vineyard surrounding Greywacke HQ on young alluvial soils containing high proportions of New Zealand’s ubiquitous greywacke river stones. This 16-year-old vineyard is planted with the Berry-Smith clone and trained on a two-cane VSP (vertical shoot positioning) trellis. The vineyard was hand-harvested twice; the first batch picked on 10 May at 32 Brix and the second batch harvested on 5 June at 34 Brix. Both harvests were carried out after considerable botrytis infection.

The shrivelled grapes were whole bunch pressed using very long, low maceration press cycles. The juices were cold-settled and then racked to old barrels for fermentation. Half of the barrels were inoculated with cultured yeast and the other half were allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation. All the components were blended during July and returned to barrel to finish fermentation, which eventually ground to a halt in late October retaining 110 g/l residual sugar. The wine was bottled in December with an alcohol of 12.5%, pH 3.65 and acidity of 6.4 g/l.
