The grapes for this wine are sourced from our Woolshed vineyard on Loveblock Farm, in the Lower Dashwood sub-region of Marborough’s Awatere Valley. The soil type is predominately aged alluvial loams containing some silt loam over stone. Dependent on vigour, the vines are pruned to two, three or four canes and trained in a normal vertical shoot position. Ideal flowering conditions, followed by a warm dry summer, meant that the grapes were picked in perfect condition. As vine vigour determines the crop load, the yield was an average of 3 tonnes per acre. Harvest occurred in the month of April. The vineyard is certified organic with BioGro NZ (#5266).
Machine-harvested in the cool Marlborough mornings, the fruit for this wine was batch produced in small amounts, with soil variation within the vineyard determining the batch size. The batches were fermented separately until dry and a small portion of the juice was barrel fermented neutral old French oak barrels and malolactic fermentation occurred. In addition, a quarter of the tanks underwent full malolactic fermentation to reduce acidity. Post fermentation, only the best parcels were selected for the final Loveblock blend
