Vineyard Description

A regional blend making the most of favourable vintage conditions and enabling the inclusion of the highest quality parcels of fruit. The picturesque Seddon Vineyard is perched on the southern banks of the rugged Awatere River in Marlborough. The Ihumatao Vineyard is a unique site, home to Villa Maria’s state of the art winery complex and planted in a sheltered volcanic basin. All vineyards have vines trained to 4-cane VSP trellising with careful canopy and yield management implemented to promote early ripening, specifically targeting méthode traditionnelle production.

TASTING NOTE
