Why you’ll love it:
Winemaker Alan Peters-Oswald is believer of minimal intervention to produce wines with maximum expressions of their terroir. The Super Nanny is produced from select parcels of the best fruit each year. The grapes are hand picked, wild yeast fermented with some whole bunch inclusions, extended skin contact and spends 15 months in French oak barrels.
Alan grew up in Central Otago and despite moving away to do his studies in Marlborough, he always wanted to produce his own wines from the place that first sparked his love for wine and hence producing wines that truly depict a sense of place was highly important.
