points of distinction

  • The higher-elevation Te Muna Road Vineyard is harvested about a week later than sites in nearby Martinborough. The grapes have greater freshness and acidity.
  • The vineyard's lower terrace has stony soils with limestone, excellent for Sauvignon Blanc.
  • White wines from this vineyard show a distinctive fine, subtle and elegant texture.
