Main Divide is the local name for the Southern Alps and is the backbone of the South Island, where grapes for Main Divide are exclusively sourced. Vineyards have been selected for their quality and ability to express unique regional fl avours.
Cold weather during bud burst resulted in lower crop levels, hence no further fruit thinning was carried out. The subsequent warm dry summer served up perfectly ripened small berries full of intense fl avour and concentration. Favourable conditions continued into autumn, allowing each variety to be picked at its optimum ripeness.
The Harvest and Winemaking
Carefully selected grapes from a unique assemblage of complementary varieties were harvested to make this wine. The free run juice was given a small amount of skin contact to add some colour. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel vats at a cool temperature to retain varietal purity and freshness, with the wine being bottled shortly after.
Upon release it has an alluring pink hue. The bouquet is vibrant and bright, with aromas of red currant, strawberry, and peach, melded with tropical notes of guava and melon, and a hint of citrus blossom. In the mouth it is dry and fi nely textured, with a core of lively and refreshing minerality. The complementary varieties ensure the wine remains fl eshy and supple, while also adding aroma and structure.
