The taste and character

Our wines are artfully blended from fruits harvested from some of the best vineyards in Marlborough. 

For our first few vintages we used fruit from a single vineyard - our precious home block at the Wairau Bar.

Today, with over 500 hectares under vine across the Marlborough region, we have the ability to select the best parcels from each vineyard to create wines brimming with complexity, balance and sophistication.  

Our Sauvignon Blanc Oke and Pinot Gris are single vineyard wines, which creates a pure, honest taste. Wines sourced from a single vineyard tend to offer a strong expression of the site, and a sense of place that can't be replicated. For example, our Wairau Bar vineyard has a unique expression because of its geographic location between the river and the ocean, so the fruit grown there expresses itself in a way unlike any other site in the Wairau Valley. 

Other wines, such as our Gold medal Pinot Noir and our flagship Sauvignon Blanc are blended from parcels from around Marlborough culminating in complex, complete, and intelligent wines. For Sauvignon in particular, we blend parcels from the Wairau Bar and from the Awatere Valley, which work well together because each vineyard possesses such different characteristics that when combined, are complemented and enhanced.
