Sauvignon Blanc 2014


Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Tasting Notes
Torrent Bay is synonymous with summer and the vistas of the Abel Tasman National Park. In this spirit our Sauvignon Blanc captures the fresh and clean flavours of gooseberries, currants, capsicum and hints of lime. Refreshingly dry it is to be enjoyed with your favourite summer food.

Winemaking
To best reflect this classic style of Sauvignon Blanc, a blend of grapes from our Bridge and Flett Road vineyards were used. The grapes from Flett Road added complexity to the wine. The juice was clarified and fermented below 15˚C to retain the fresh clean flavours.
After the wine had finished ferment it was racked off the solid yeast and left on fine lees to add complexity and allow the wine to build extra mouth-feel.

Pinot Gris 2014


Pinot Gris 2014

Tasting Notes
The use of different ferment temperatures allowed for a nicely balanced wine. Peach, apricot and aromatic pears are the leading flavours, lifted by subtle hazelnut notes and quince.

Winemaking
Predominately fruit from our clay based Flett Road vineyard in the Moutere was used in the 2014 Pinot Gris. During pressing the juice was split into fractions, with lightly pressed juice fermented separately from the rest. Left on fine lees for several months allowed the wine to develop clean fruit characters with a soft texture.

Pinot Gris 2013


Pinot Gris 2013

Tasting Notes
Juicy peach and apricot with notes of hazelnut on the nose. Sweet flavours of honey melon and crispy apple, give this wine a nice balance on the palate. With a finish of quince and pear.

All grapes were machine harvested and de-stemmed as quickly as possible to retain the primary fruit characters. Fruit from all our vineyards was kept separate and evaluated once the juice was cold settled and clarified.

After 3 months lees contact the wines were re-evaluated to create a harmonious and fruit driven wine, representing all nuances from our vineyards.

Chardonnay 2013


Chardonnay 2013

Tasting Notes
On the nose apricot, honeysuckle and subtle pineapple flavours are predominant. The ripeness of the initial fruit gives this wine a big lift of those flavours on the palate, complimented by a gentle influence of oak with its toasty creamy texture.

Winemaking
Grapes from our Flett Road vineyard came in at 24.8 brix on 29th March. Predominately stainless steel fermented at 11˚, with a very subtle influence of oak, allowed the wine to show its ripe flavours without being overpowered by oak. Left on lees until 21st October 2013 enabled the wine to pick up some lovely texture, without losing its primary fruit flavours of apricot, honeysuckle and pineapple.

  • 3.0 g/L RS
  • 7.2 g/L TA
  • 3.47 pH
  • Harvest Date: 29th March 2013

Pinot Noir 2013


Pinot Noir 2013

Tasting Note
Bright ruby red in colour with plentiful red berry flavours on the nose, this Pinot Noir is delightfully different. Strawberry, raspberry and cherry are the dominant flavours, rounded off with toasty oak notes.

Winemaking
The fruit is grown on river soil with a gentle sea-breeze during the summer months giving the fruit a very moderate climate to ripen in.
Picked on the 2nd April the 10/5 clone showed nice red berry fruit characters, which we preserved through the winemaking process.
In a temperature controlled open fermenter the wine was gently fermented on skins and two-three times a day had its juice from the bottom pumped over the skins to allow gentle colour and flavour extraction.
After pressing the wine was left to settle for a few days. Partially in old oak barrels and stainless steel tanks the wine was left to do malolactic fermentation and was finally blended on 29th November and bottled on 4th December.

  • Technical Details: 12.5% Alc
  • 2.9 g/L RS
  • 5.2 g/L TA
  • 3.62 pH
  • Harvest Date: 2 April 2013
  • Bottling Date: 4 December 2013
  • Cases Produced: 500
  • Winemaker: Stefan Heinrich
  • No Fining Agents Used
  • RRP $16.99
