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

The Tempranillo was harvested and put into stainless steel tanks for ferment. A fast, hot fermentation proceeded with regular hand plunging which helped to craft a wine with elegance and balance. Post primary fermentation, the wine was held on skins for 14 days before being pressed off and left to settle for 48 hours. It was then racked in to a mixture of new and old French oak puncheons and barriques, where it spent time aging. It was then blended, stabilised and -filtered prior to bottling.

Seaview

The key to growing Tempranillo in the Awatere Valley is very sensitive and thoughtful vineyard management. These vines were cropped to one bunch per shoot and the leaves were removed in the fruiting zone during ripening. 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.
