Winemaking:

Fruit was sourced from a selection of premium vineyards located in the lower Wairau Valley, at the mouth of the Wairau River. These vineyards are planted on floodplains, rich in nutrients, producing wines with heightened expression. Each vineyard block was harvested at optimum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness. Grapes were transported to the winery quickly and pressed off immediately to minimise skin contact. After cold settling the juice from each batch was fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeast strains. Each batch was assessed for quality and only the best components were selected for this James Sinclair blend.
