Halcyon Days Ruth 2020
Predominantly skin contact Pinot Gris from Mangatahi blended with Syrah Rosé from Bridge Pa. It’s a fine example of a less binary approach to wine.
Amy and Ollie Hopkinson-Styles met while Amy was winemaking in Spain, and Ollie was writing for Decanter Magazine in London. They were drawn back to New Zealand with Hawkes Bay in mind as a great place to make wine and bring up sprogs. They sum up what they passionately do very nicely -
“Halcyon Days wine is made with organic grapes from Biogro certified vineyards. The grapes are handpicked, naturally fermented, and bottled unfined, unfiltered, with no additions. We use time honoured methods to create striking wines that are a dynamic expression of Halcyon’s place: Heretaunga/Hawke’s Bay”.
