The three clones of Pinot Noir grapes grown at grava are the Dijon clones 115 and 777 and Abel (the “gumboot” clone). The Pinot Noir wines made are clone blends - offering optimum aroma and flavour characteristics, making grava Pinots excellent examples from a region famous for this variety.
The 2015 grava Pinot Noir shows complex savoury and fruit aromas, followed by a well-structured palate with a long, elegant finish. This wine has not been fined or filtered.
grava Riesling is cold macerated on skins for a short time, then gently pressed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks with a small barrel component. The resulting wine has enticing aromas, great texture, and a strong acid backbone, which will ensure graceful ageing over the coming years.
The 2015 grava Riesling is distinguished by its citrus fruit character and a crisp mineral finish.
grava’s Rosé is produced predominantly from a single Pinot Noir clone, picked early to ensure lively acidity to back up the fruit forward characters which represent a great Rosé. The wine is given minimal skin contact in the press - resulting in a subtle salmon-coloured wine.
The 2015 grava Rosé was fermented in 500 litre puncheons to produce a fruit-driven wine with a layer of mineral complexity.
Made from ripe grapes, grava Sauvignon Blanc has a subtle array of tropical fruit characteristics, and a soft mid palate as a result of time spent on fine lees. The wine has a long finish, is food friendly and is a surprising twist on typical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
The 2015 grava Sauvignon Blanc was whole-bunch pressed to produce a wine with refined fruit characters and distinct minerality.
