The Seddon Vineyard is nestled on the southern bank of Marlborough's Awatere River. This warm, sheltered site is tempered by a cool evening breeze running off the slopes of Mt. Tapuae-o-Uenuku, creating perfect ripening conditions.
The fruit is grown on two terraces, sheltered from the cold southerly which results in a warm mesoclimate. The fruit is from a mix of clones and pruning techniques. During the growing season, extensive canopy manipulation is carried out including shoot and bunch thinning, and leaf plucking.
This wine has been gently crafted using a natural approach to winemaking. A seductive bouquet comprising perfumed, ripe cherries, red fruit and enticing floral aromas, it is concentrated and displays deep layers of fruit. An elegant
and refined wine with an alluring velvety texture, it is stylish and complex, with finesse and a harmonious balance.
Will reward up to 10 years of careful cellaring.
