Thinking differently is what we do at Yealands. Crafting award-winning wines in harmony with nature has seen us lead the world in sustainable winegrowing. But most importantly, it means great tasting wines which don’t cost the earth.

The Yealands Estate Land Made Series is sourced from New Zealand’s leading wine regions. The winemakers have chosen to allow the land to tell its own story, selecting parcels of grapes carefully nurtured from the vine to the bottle. These individual parcels are skillfully combined to produce intense and authentic wines, reflective of their distinctively unique origin.           


VINEYARD
Vineyard:   Seaview 100%
We had a sensational growing season for the 2013 vintage in Marlborough. It was just one beautifully clear day after the other, warm and sunny with little rainfall. However, we still experienced cool nights during the ripening period which helped to develop intense flavours in the grapes. These conditions ensured healthy, clean vine canopies and fruit packed with flavour and intensity across all varieties. With the warm weather, harvest started slightly early this year. The vintage was short and very intense, with several of our varieties ripening around the same time giving us a shorter than usual window for harvesting. We are thrilled with the overall quality of our 2013 vintage.

WINEMAKING

The five Riesling blocks were harvested separately at optimum ripeness, pressed off gently then cold settled for 72 hours. The clear juice was racked carefully and inoculated with a selected yeast strain to capture and enhance the aromatic Riesling flavours. A long and cool fermentation took place over five weeks and stopped naturally when the alcohol, residual sugar and acidity were in perfect balance. The wine was then racked, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
