Sitting just north of the City of Christchurch in the rich tapestry of New Zealand’s Canterbury Plains is St Helena Wine Estate. Founded in 1978 by the Mundy family, the vineyard takes maximum advantage of the regions long, warm summers and dry autumns. An ideal climate for producing some of the best premium grapes the Southern Hemisphere has to offer. The result is a stunning selection of wines produced from the winery’s 20 hectare estate. In fact, St Helena is acknowledged as the pioneer in establishing premium Pinot Noir for New Zealand. Owners Robin and Bernice Mundy and award winning winemaker Alan McCorkindale are passionate in their dedication to producing exceptional fruit and wines from the vineyard and the continuing development of Canterbury as one of New Zealand’s finest wine producing regions. Grapes for this wine were macerated on skins for one week prior to fermentation which is in small open vats using natural yeast strains and hand plunging to provide gentle extraction of colour and tannin. Upon completion of fermentation the wine was matured in barrels for 9 months prior to release.
