The fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards located across the Hawkes Bay region. An array of soil profiles combined with high sunshine hours and low rainfall make Hawkes Bay New Zealand's `home' to the French Bordeaux variety Merlot. A significant portion of the final blend was grown in Villa Maria vineyards in close proximity to Gimblett Road.
The fruit was destemmed and crushed to fermentation vessels. To extract optimum colour, flavour and tannins, the fruit was plunged or pulsed with oxygen two times each day during fermentation, with temperatures peaking at 32°C. Following pressing and malolactic fermentation, the wine spent the next nine months in tank in contact with fine grained, lightly toasted French oak. The individual wines were then racked and blended, lightly egg-white fined and filtered prior to bottling
