Selected special sites within the Te Awa vineyard give us Boundary quality grapes. Each grape variety and each parcel was hand picked and fermented separately, which allowed us to maximise the vineyard’s potential in the winery. Post ferment maceration where the new wine remains in contact with the skins was a key step in achieving balance and finesse. The average time of maceration in 2002 was 23 days. The components of Boundary underwent the malo-lactic fermentation in barrel. In spring, after extensive laboratory trials, blending of the various components to achieve the best possible expression of the vineyard character was carried out. The Merlot brings a supple, velvety texture to the palate, Cabernet Franc, which gave us stunning results in 2002, gives fragrance and an early palate richness, Cabernet Sauvignon adds depth and structure on the finish, and Malbec brings perfume and spice. Boundary 2002 spent 17 months in fine grained French oak barrels and was bottled in December 2003.
