Our stories from one place.
SUNSHINE IN A BOTTLE
FROM GREAT CHALLENGES COMES GREAT REWARD
Ask our winemakers and they’ll tell you that, without a doubt, Pinot Noir is the most temperamental grape on the planet. It is certainly the one that most keeps them awake at night. The truth is, Pinot is uncompromising – demanding, keeps us on our toes and isn’t prone to making anything easy. But the results are definitively worth it.
THE FREEDOM TO BE INDIVIDUAL
WINEMAKING ON THE EDGE
As if New Zealand wasn’t already on the edge of the earth, wait until you’ve made the journey to Wairau Valley, Marlborough. At 41.51S 174.01E, we’re literally on the edge of the world. Wedged between rugged mountains on both sides and with two icy rivers cutting a track through, it’s an extreme place. This valley is the definition of raw, untamed, cool climate.
To say this presents challenges is an understatement. But digging deep and working in harmony with the environment builds strong character – and strong character makes great wines.
