Kenzie Tearz White noir (6 Bottles) New Zealand

by Wines By Cellars 2 orders



Handpicked fruit was wholebunch pressed direct to tank with full solids.

After a few days, wild fermentation spontaneously started and progressed for 18 days with a maximum temperature of 23 deg C.

Post fermentation the wine was racked to old oak puncheons (500L), to undergo natural malolactic fermentation.

After 4 months of maturing at cool temperatures, Tearz was racked to tank for bottling. No fining or filtration. Minimal sulphur was added two weeks before bottling.

An idea born out of lockdown, a whole bunch pressed, white noir, from a blend of Pinot noir and Chardonnay.

Maraschino cherry, rhubarb and fresh strawberry. A savoury, dry wine with a creamy, chewy texture and flavours of red apple skins and brioche. A highly drinkable and fully chilled wine.

About Kenzie wines

Kenzie is about pushing the boundaries of style, while remaining authentic to where we come from. We aim to use our creative instincts without the fear of failure.

Our grapes are grown using sustainable and organic practices.

As a small, independent producer, we aren’t held back by convention and can embrace risk and intuition. Our goal is to keep true to ourselves, while working holistically and respectfully within our community.

After 15 years of making wines in the Yarra Valley under Arfion and Salo, Dave Mackintosh felt the emotional pull to return to Aotearoa and create unique, modern, and beautiful wines from Hawke’s Bay / Te Matau a Māui soils.
