Seaview Vineyard

Awatere Valley

Our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours.

Sheltered Terrace

Warm
Sheltered

The soil is predominantly windblown loess.

The parcel of Gewürztraminer that makes our Single Vineyard wine is located on a warm sheltered terrace, within the Seaview vineyard.

This low yielding Gewürztraminer was harvested, de-stemmed and left cold in the press to macerate for 12 hours to build structure and texture from skin contact.

Winemaker's Notes

Richness & Weight

The fruit was pressed off gently to settle in a small stainless steel tank for 36 hours. A portion of the juice was racked off, taking light lees to old French barriques with the other portion going to tank for fermentation. Post fermentation the barrels were stirred twice weekly to build richness and weight.

Tasting Notes

Refreshingly Dry

Enjoy with spicy dishes such as Vietnamese duck salad or Thai fish curry.
