Grapes Pinot Noir (100%)
Soil The grapes were harvested on two different plots. One of them in the Bannockburn sub-region, on clay, quartz and sandstone overlying schist rock and high drainage gravel; the other in the Alexandra sub-region, further south, planted on gravel and deep alluvial soil with patches of shale and limestone of pedogenic origin.
Winemaking Harvested in the first week of April, 20% of the bunches were left uncapped, and were transferred to small open top vats, where they were subjected to 4 days of pre-fermentative pellicular maceration at cold temperature. The must was then fermented with indigenous yeasts and macerated for 25 days through pigeage. Neutral French oak barrels were then filled, where the wine aged for 12 months. Bottling took place on 20 May 2015, without fining or filtration.
Aging 12 months in neutral French oak barrels.
Capacity 750 ml

Henrique Cizeron is a veterinary doctor who converted to the world of wine. After travelling the world, he starts making wine in the Douro region, in the Vinho Verde region, and New Zealand giving life to his Cizeron Wines project.

It began in the Douro region with the Cinética brand, which evokes action, heat, work, strength, everything that has built the profile of Douro wines over the last few centuries. The representation of the cogwheel suggests the sun, but inside it discriminates the multi-cultural agricultural landscapes of the region: vineyard, almond grove, olive grove.

His roots led him to extend his project to the Vinho Verde region, in the sub-region of Ave, between Barcelos and Famalicão, about 18 km from the coast. The idea was to valorise one of the most marginalised sub-regions by producing high-quality wines with limited productions. As soon as he discovered old and quality strains, he planned low-intervention winemaking intending to demonstrate the extraordinary potential of this region.

In New Zealand, he created his own brand Toroa, which means albatross in Maori dialect, to produce a Riesling and a Gewurztraminer from vineyards located in Central Otago, the southernmost wine region of New Zealand boasting large mountains and spectacular lakes.

And so, Henrique Cizeron fulfilled his dream of producing terroir wines. Unique wines with limited productions.
