Vineyard

Fruit for this wine was sourced from the Awatere(42%), central Wairau Valley (16%) and Wairau finger valley of Waihopai (42%) where the vines are planted on a variety of soil types ranging from free draining gravelly soils to silty clay. Low yielding vines and typical warm days and cool nights have resulted in a wine showing fresh classic flavours with purity and intensity.
