More on vineyard and winemaking:  TerraVin draws fruit from three densely planted sites stretching across the revered Southern Valleys of Marlborough. These hillside vineyards are afforded their true expression through low yields (2200-2400 plants/ ha), gentle handling and winemaker Gordon Ritchie’s intuitive approach. A moderate yielding vintage with a good flowering that was backed up by a classic Marlborough summer. The smaller berries ensured good concentration and the warmth ensured good natural balance of acid, pH and lower alcohols. Hand-picked fruit into 10kg bins then gently pressed. The free run juice was settled and divided with the majority going to stainless steel tanks for cool fermentation over a 20 day period using cultured yeast. Approximately 20% of the wine was wild-fermented and aged for 8 months in seasoned French barrels to add complexity and mid-palate richness.
