The vines from this BioGro certified vineyard bordering the Gimblett Gravels in Hawkes Bay, were planted in 2002 on Pakipaki (thin top-soil over Taupo pumice) and Twyford silt loam soil types.
The warm summer of 2014 combined with the cool evening temperatures during the autumn period has produced a wine showing classic flavours, intensity and fresh but balanced natural acidity. Meticulous attention to detail with vine and soil health, yield control and vine balance have contributed to optimum flavour and fruit condition at the time of harvest.
