This wine is produced from grapes grown in the Awatere Valley (50%) and the Wairau Valley (50%). Both these vineyard sites have gravel soils and produce ripe fruit while retaining acidity, ideal for the production of this medium-dry style wine. These old vines are intensively managed with shoot thinning, crop thinning and leaf removal all practised in the pursuit of quality.
