Vineyard

Fruit for this wine was sourced from the Wairau Valley; central Wairau Valley (45%) and Wairau finger valley of Waihopai (55%). The vines are planted on a variety of soil types ranging from free draining gravelly soils to those of silty clay. With low yielding vines followed by typical warm days and cool nights, the result is a wine that shows classic fresh flavours with purity and intensity.
