Producer/ Vineyard

The soils of the site are fertile and the aspect is north facing. While the sub-region is described as ‘early country’, sheltered from the harsh southerly weather patterns, sitting in the lee of the Wither Hills to the south east of the Wairau Valley floor.

Furthermore the vineyard is only three kilometres from the high tide mark and the vineyard is approximating 10 metres above sea level.

Being close to the sea, in some years they see a very unique flavour profile in some of the wines. There is a distinctive umami note, a salty influence that creates a unique sense of place from this single vineyard site.

Moreover the soil structure is Kaiapoi silt loam. It has a fertile soil profile, which borders the Opawa river. As you move north, away from the river, the soils become more clay loam in structure.
