The vineyard is located within the Waipara Valley of North Canterbury, on free draining, north facing terraces. It benefits from being in the lee of the Teviotdale Range, giving maximum protection from the Pacific’s easterly breezes and thus creating a unique mesoclimate. The vines are over 30 years old, with a large proportion planted on their own roots. They are located on the “Glasnevin Gravels” where greywacke stones, silt and loam have been washed down from the mountains over the millennia. The soil is of low fertility, resulting in naturally reduced vine vigour. This produces low yields of optimally ripened, high quality, flavourful grapes, which fully express the qualities of this unique terroir. The vineyard has warm days, but the nights are amongst the coolest in the Waipara Valley, drawing out the ripening period of the grapes, while still retaining good natural acidity.


13% ABV

Upon release the wine is bright ruby in colour, the bouquet a rich tapestry of both red and dark fruit, as well as savoury notes. Heady aromas of cherries, plums and pomegranate swell from the glass, flanked by a smouldering column of cinnamon, mushroom, truffle and leather. The mouthfeel is generous yet supple, with a pelt of velvety ripe tannins that adds structure and length. Well-judged acidity completes the perfect partnership, giving balance and setting up for a long and harmonious finish.
