In the harsh growing conditions of the Awatere Valley Marlborough, our low yielding vines produce wines with an intense varietal character. Subject to low rainfall, high sunshine, cool nights and strong winds, we’ve nurtured the fruit from our Seaview Vineyard with low impact methods right through production in our leading edge carboNZeroCertTM certified sustainable winery. This wine reflects our aim of becoming the most sustainable wine grower in the world, creating premium wines of intensity and purity, in complete harmony with the environment.

“Marlborough’s version of this Austrian grape comes from the largest viticultural estate in the country. Stone fruit, honeysuckle, a touch of white pepper and a fresh, dry finish. Pure delight.”Steven Spurrier, Decanter 1 June 2012
"Vanilla and lemon curd on the nose mix with lovely passion fruit flavours, this is crisp and cool, bright, fresh and long,' said team leader Angela Reddin, while Mark Dearmer of The Marylebone Hotel noted 'honeyed pears with hints of citrus. Ginger spices warm the lengthy finish. Food friendly."Sommelier Wine Awards 2013 BRONZE 15 May 2013
