Harvest:Low yielding clones grown at the base of the Omihi hills, facing north-west into the North Canterbury sunshine. Fruit was harvested in the cool of the early morning to retain freshness and acidity.

Viticulture:Unique limestone conglomerate in which the vine roots grow (greystone). A limestone mix of fossils, sea shells and small pebbles that have been fused together through the seismic movement of North Canterbury. The north-facing limestone hills slope down to clay, the perfect combination for growing wines with minerality and concentration.

The Wine Front - Gary Walsh

Golden colour. Pineapple, quince, brown lime and butter, frangipani and a little green capsicum. It’s rich, quite slippery in texture, but has a juicy cut of acidity, some jalapeño spiciness, a little chalkiness, and a rich lychee and spice finish of good length. Quite intense, with a lot of flavour, and quite different to your run-of-the-mill NZ Sauvignon.

The Real Review - Bob Campbell MW

Creamy, concentrated sauvignon blanc with green capsicum, melon, nectarine and apple flavours. The wine has a pleasing texture and fruity acidity that helps drive a lengthy finish.
