Oenology: Henrique Cizeron
Foreign Region Country: New Zealand
Region: Central Otago
Grapes Riesling (100%)
Soil The grapes come from a parcel located in New Zealand's youngest and "riskiest" region: Waitaki Valley. The Waitaki is one of the largest intertwined rivers in the country, draining water from the highest mountain (Mount Cook 3724 m) to the South Pacific, across the east coast of the South Island. To the region's most distinctive feature is even the predominant limestone, courtesy of an ancient geological fault that presses 38-million-year-old ocean floor up the watershed, leaving the exposed northern slopes with soil consisting of limestone and mixed zones of gravels and shales.
Winemaking After careful manual harvesting on 28 of April, the grapes were pressed as whole bunches, i.e. without destemming. The resulting must settled solids overnight at low temperature, then decanted into stainless steel vats, where it fermented for two and a half weeks. The wine remained on its fine lees for eight months, without interventions, until it was bottled in November 2016.
Aging 8 months in stainless steel vats.
Capacity 750 ml
Volume Alcohol by Volume: 13%
Temperature 10ºC - 12ºC
Harmonizations Fish, seafood and spicy Asian foods.

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.
