Wines are true expression of the land and vineyard site

Generous mouthfeel, balanced, complex, full flavoured wines

Small producer around 1,700 cases year

Not supermarket wines

Hand tended close planted vines with only two canes and low cropping

Careful cane selection, shoot thinning and bunch control with one bunch per cane

90% of fruit dropped, leaf plucked to promote high airflow, vine ripening and flavour concentration

Limited irrigation and spraying delivers premium quality fruit to the wine maker

Sustainable viticultural practices and balanced soil management program

The Moutere Gravel terrane of Tasman Bay is renown for producing premium full bodied reds with excellent balanced concentration, minerality and dark berry characters

“Simple philosophy is to produce premium quality fruit and guide the grapes into the bottle”
