Beyond the Bottle

2020

The vintage behind this wine

All-round, it was a great growing season, with warm temperatures ensuring perfect conditions for flowering and fruit set. The settled weather continued as the fruit ripened, with above-average temperatures, ensuring juicy acidity and concentrated fruit flavours. At the time of picking, the fruit was in optimal condition — healthy, with great flavour and integrity

THE CRAFTSMAN

CLEIGHTON CORNELIUS

Cleighten believes learning is the key, both experimentally and from others. Having a job where you only get one chance a year to perfect your art means that winemaking remains challenging and a continually evolving process.

Meet the Team

It began as an adventure. 

Our founders were a courageous couple who embarked on a sailing tour of the world. On one of the earliest stops, they found New Zealand. They quickly fell in love and decided to end the tour of the world in favour of building a mud house in New Zealand and planting a vineyard.  After preparing the land and planting vines, they used the local earth to build their home. That home became our brand. Over twenty years on, with a renewed sense of energy, we remain as in touch with the land as our name suggests.
