Craft - Purity - Passion

Our Winemaking Philosophy is very simple.

Our winemaking is about respecting the fruit, allowing wild yeasts to ferment the wines with no other additions.

The Vintage

2021 was one of the lowest yielding vintages since 2012 and the concentration shows on wines across all varieties.

The season itself started wet and cool and we had a very poor flowering which meant open clusters and small berries. From December onward the season returned to normal and we had the usual dry Marlborough summer finishing with cooler weather than normal.

The aromatic profiles were elevated even further with the large diurnal range from cool nights and warm days over the last few weeks of the vintage.
