Awatere Valley

Unreservedly the best place to grow our only Pinot Noir.

It’s not about the biggest vineyards, it’s about the smallest berries.

Altogether this combination of Awatere Valley’s unique soil and climate results in fully ripened fruit for the making of exceptional Pinot Noir.

The Awatere Valley is cooler than other regions in Marlborough. Because it enjoys the influence of cool Pacific Ocean breezes at night, the growing season is longer, developing fruit with unique varietal character, an intensity of flavour and bright acidity. The berries are often small, meaning their flavours are vivid and intense.
