Overview

Marketplace Product

Colour – Limpid yellow green.
Aroma – White fruits, hints of melon.
Palate – Clean, dry wine with similar suggestions to the aroma, i.e. white fruits and the merest hint of melon.
Cellaring – 5-10 years will lead to increasing depth of colour and complexity. However, the makers preference is to consume in the first five or so years after vintage.
Vintage – 2015 was an early vintage and the fruit was picked at approx. 12-5° beaumé.
Vinification – The wine was whole bunch pressed and cold settled for 48 hours. It was then racked off its gross solids and underwent fermentation in a stainless-steel tank. It was cold and protein stabilized over winter and then bottled six months after vintage, without filtration.
General Comments – I have found Savagnin to be the most difficult grape to vinify in Mosquito Hills range of varieties. This is the first successful foray into making a refreshing dry white wine with this variety and I am very happy with the result. Our first vineyard, aptly named Magpie’s Song after the carolling of the winery’s resident magpies, was planted in 1996 with six acres of Chardonnay. Pinot Blanc and Savagnin were later grafted on to one-and-a-half acres.
A four-acre vineyard of Pinot Noir followed shortly afterwards in 1998. Established with the help of Glyn’s tennis mates, it was named The Hawthorns in their honour.
Both vineyards were established using drip irrigation but have been dry grown since 2005. This ensures low yields of high-quality grapes.

Couple this with our vines’ maturity and the region’s cool climate and you have a recipe for small grapes that are high in acidity and flavour but light in body, allowing us to make the product we’re so proud of: powerfully flavoured wines without undue weight.

Vintage may vary. Every effort is made to ensure the current vintage is displayed, however variations can occur.
