Tasting notes

Our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is one of New Zealand’s most coastal vineyards. Breath-taking vistas of rolling hills and wild coastline define our wines. The strong offshore winds encourage the grapes to grow small with thickened skins and wonderfully concentrated characteristics.

Yealands Estate Single Vineyard wines are the truest expression of our coastal location, showcasing our unique environment and diversity of flavours across this singularly incredible vineyard.

Winemaker's notes

decor wave

This Gewürztraminer was harvested, destemmed and pressed off gently to settle in a small stainless steel tank for 48 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. The two portions were racked, blended then stabilised and filtered before bottling.

Vineyard

Seaview

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. This results in naturally low cropping fruit with intense flavour and structure. The parcel of Gewürztraminer that makes our Single Vineyard wine is located on a warm sheltered terrace, within the Seaview vineyard. The soil is predominantly windblown loess.

At Yealands, we aim to leave the land better than we found it. We achieve this through a wide range of initiatives and on-going projects including developing wetlands, making our own special compost and using natural pest control measures in our vineyard.
