Our Vineyard on Dry River Road is about 14Km from Martinborough Wine Village at the base of a valley with the road and the river being our boundaries.
The location has free draining soil is relatively frost free and enjoys cooler temperatures typically 1° to 1.5°c less than the village. The hills around the vineyard shade the vines reducing sun shine hours. These conditions are ideal for cool climate grapes.
After careful consideration of alternative grapes we decided to plant 2000 chardonnay vines – because we enjoy drinking it.
The location is also ideal for our 180 Tuscan variety olive trees, a mix of Frantoio and Leccino, our favorite oil blend.
The small numbers of trees and vines allows intensive management, picking and pruning are done manually and no herbicides are used on the block.
In the winery our philosophy is “less is more”. We focus on light pressing of the fruit to extract only the finest juice, and apart from small quantities of sulphite, an essential preservative, we add no sugar, chemicals or enzymes to our wine.
