    "...ethereal" - Neil McCallum!"Perhaps as a consequence of the high average age of these vines, this was again amongst the first harvested in Martinborough. The cropping was relatively light (1t/A, approx 16hl/ha) and when this fact is combined with the...

    "Our Pinots have quite high levels of fruit tannins and low levels of new oak (ca 20%) compared to the majority of NZ and even French Pinots. This helps create a long-lived wine with what we believe is a more authentic expression of "terroir". In the...
