The fruit for this vintage was amazing; the grapes were fantastically ripe and extremely flavourful. The goal in the winery was to craft a wine that embodied all the diversity of flavours and aromas developed in the vineyard. To help achieve this a few key techniques were employed: a long “cold soak” prior to fermentation extracted more of the subtle light fruit characters from the skins; a relatively fast alcoholic fermentation with a long post ferment maceration balanced out the tannins; the wine was barrelled down immediately after pressing and a lot of solids were incorporated to enhance the mouth feel and texture; and the wine was racked only once, prior to bottling.

Winery Profile

Hinton Estate was established by the family that has grown premium stonefuit in Central Otago for over 100 years. The first vines were planted in the late 1990’s and Howie Hinton, a fifth generation orchardist, is the viticulturist and winemaker. The vineyard was established on steep north facing slopes where the terrain is too tough for summer fruit yet ideal for grapes, especially pinot noir and aromatic white varieties. The winemaking philosophy matches that of the family’s fruit operation, where only perfect fruit is accepted. The ethos is based on growing quality grapes and enhancing natural flavours through utilisation of simple, traditional winemaking techniques and the best technical innovation.
