Additional information

Waipara Estate

Waipara Springs Winery is located in the heart of the Waipara Valley, just a 45 minute drive north of Christchurch in the South Island. Planted in the early 1980s and now covering some 26ha, the vineyard contains some of the oldest own-rooted Mendoza clone Chardonnay in New Zealand, providing the entirely estate-grown wines with a depth and intensity that only old vines can produce.

The Waipara Springs Estate Vineyard from which Premo wines are solely sourced has a terroir that renders wines totally unique. Derived from a prehistoric lake bed at the centre of the Waipara Valley floor the vineyard soils are a rich blend of clay and limestone. With vines sheltered from the prevailing easterly winds by the Teviotdale range, high midsummer heat combined with relatively low rainfall during the growing season and cold nights during harvest provide near perfect conditions for high quality fruit.

Production

The grapes are machine harvested, pressed and cold settled for 24 hours, racked clear and fermented at cool temperatures for approximately 18 days. Then left on full ferment lees for one month, racked, blended and lightly fined before filtration and bottling.
