Coeur de Cuvée is gently whole bunch pressed by hand, in a traditional wooden basket press. For this wine, only the free run juice was used and matured for 10 months before being bottled and tirage being undertaken. Coeur de Cuvée was aged on lees for 45 months creating complex characteristics with delicate and elegant effervescence.
The 2015 season was a sunshine-filled, dry year, creating the perfect ripening conditions. Harvest was undertaken mid-April, which for New Zealand is late for sparkling. This is due to a cooler ripening microclimate, allowing grapes to remain on the vines longer, developing complexity and perfect sugar and acid levels for sparkling.
