VINEYARD DESCRIPTION

The fruit for this wine originates from a diverse range of vineyard sites
in both the Awatere and Wairau valleys in Marlborough. The climate in
Marlborough has high sunshine hours, but temperatures during the growing
season are regulated by the cooling ocean influence. Vintage 2015 will be
remembered as one of the strong years due to a great summer and modest
crop levels. Low rainfall going back to winter 2014 and a cool spring
produced a season with intensely concentrated Pinot Noir fruit.
