Alluvial river stone in a pocket of sunshine.
There’s a lot to be said for a place that can create a world-class cool climate, stunningly elegant Merlot , aromatic and refreshing Pinot Gris and vibrant sparkling wines. This incredible diversity of wines and flavour speaks of the region’s diversity itself.
One of the things that ties the Hawke’s Bay together from a viticultural perspective and also creates some of its diversity are the braided rivers that weave across its plains. These rivers have helped etch the terraced walls of our vineyards and ushered the alluvial stone gravels towards the plains. As these stones bask in plentiful sunshine, vine roots edge beneath to find nutrients. It is these processes that have created the unique environment in which our vines flourish.
