A romance not a blockbuster, feminine not masculine, balance not power, family not corporate, and love not lust.
Our vineyard of 4 hectares is planted with 12,000 Pinot Noir vines with the oldest vines planted in 1998. The vineyard is on a westerly face slope down in the sheltered Alexandra basin in Central Otago New Zealand. We have the extremes of winter frosts -12C and summer heat 35C with cool continental climate nights.
Our growing season starts in early October with and picking in early to mid April depending on the season.
The rows of vines are angled to the north west to balance the sun light on both sides of the vines. Vines are bud rubbed, shoot thinned, tucked up, grape thinned and shoulder trimmed and picked, all by hand.
