WHAKAPIRIPIRI MAI means assemble, gather together in Maori. Olivier Lejeune met Falco, a Croatian artist on the small island of Waiheke near Auckland while studying a Wine science diploma. He and Sophie from Australia have painted this amazing piece on a wall of a school in Mexico. Whakapiripiri Mai celebrates the amazing talent of these two artists coming from different backgrounds, and the blend of grapes from two different parcels: “les cailloux” and “clos des plantes” to craft a rather singular profile of Chenin blanc.
From 30yo vines planted on Schist/ Quartz + Phtanites, Rhyolite, Spilite soils.
The dominant soil typehere is Schist, with slivers of Quartz in Les Cailloux, as well as phtanites, Rhyolites, and Spilites, which are all the result of old seismic activity in the region. Olivier recovered these neglected parcels in early 2017,
a mammoth undertaking that has handsomely paid off. He is a believer in regenerative farming, aiming to do the minimum amount of ploughing
(if any at all), and working with principles of agroforestry as well as introducing animals into the parcels and much more.
