Description

Vin de Paille is a method of producing concentrated, sweet wines through extended drying of the harvested grapes. The earliest written records go back to 800BC and the resulting wines are very long-lived.

For our first Vin de Paille we used Pinot Gris from the steep half-hectare block on the Home Vineyard.

The grapes were carefully hand-picked onto racks and then dried in the loft of our vineyard barn for 45 days. The dried grapes were then slowly whole-bunch pressed over 6 hours. The rich juice was then fermented with indigenous ‘wild’ yeast.

Fresh and lively, it sings on the palate! Pear, apple, spice, florals and honeyed notes can all be found in this complex wine made with Pinot Gris from our Home Vineyard site. The luscious texture is followed by incredible refreshing acidity, leaving the palate cleansed and wanting more.

This rich, layered and complex wine manages to retain freshness and structure thanks to the elevation of the site and the concentration from the drying process.

These two wonderful people share their passion for Central Otago. A 20 minute interview with inspiring @paulpujol by the fantastic @madsmw. If you have any preconceptions about New Zealand-Pinot Noir it’s time to let them go. 360 bottles of Home Vineyard will be launched at Systembolaget tomorrow. Don’t be late! .
