Red Wine Grapes

With a variety of open top and multi-fermenter tanks, NZW will fulfill the needs of every client. They range in size from 3.5 Tonnes to 10 Tonnes, and the newly installed 30 Tonne fermenters are ideal for a full truck and trailer of grapes. We have the option of hand plunging, automated plunging or pulse air for cap management.  

Small batches of hand- picked grapes are processed through a small crusher/destemmer away from the main processing area.

Barrel storage is available in a temperature controlled environment.

We have tanks ranging in size from 2500 litres to 270,000 litres. Four receival hoppers feed 18 X 10 Tonne presses and 3 X 35 Tonne presses. This allows NZW to receive multiple parcels of fruit at a rate capable of coping with the most challenging of vintage conditions. This ensures the fruit will be harvested in a short period of time, should the weather require it. 

Provision for hand-picked fruit with gentle handling enables the best quality juice is produced, for super premium parcels.
