Located at the narrowing of the upper Wairau Valley with lovely north facing aspects. The coolness of the area combined with the airflow created by the river, allows a longer, slower ripening season. The combination of the river stone and clay soils deliver mineral acidity and tannins with tension.

The settled weather in Marlborough made for ideal flowering and growing conditions, while the warm summer ripened fruit beautifully. These excellent conditions continued throughout harvest and at the time of picking, the fruit was in optimal condition - ripe, healthy and heaving with berry flavours. This Pinot Noir was harvested in early March.
We live amongst the vineyards in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. For us it’s all about lifestyle. We’re lucky to enjoy the simple things from the land; like fresh crayfish, scallop season and wild venison. And because our wines are available in cities around the world, we also thrive on what the world has to offer. Pretty much the best of both worlds we reckon.
Our fresh accessible style of wine is made to be shared. Crisp whites, rich aromatics and reds with depth and purity.Everyday wines to enjoy on any occasion.
“When friends pop round, it’s our ‘go to’ wine. You could say it’s our house red.”
– Jack Glover
The South Island of New Zealand covers over 151,215km2 ofrugged mountains, lakes, glaciers, ski fields and rivers. As proud guardians of the land our iconic vineyards are located in some of New Zealand's defining wine regions: Marlborough, Central Otago and the Waipara Valley. Each location has been selected with care and foresight; and as a result we aim to interfere as little as possible once the grapes arrive in the hands of the winemakers. Each vintage we create a portfolio of pure, expressive, balanced, vibrant and honest wines.
