Our founders set sail to travel world only to fall in love with New Zealand. After planting vines, they used the local earth to build their home.
Two decades on, we continue to celebrate the spirit of striking out and breaking boundaries; wherever you are in the world, look out for our distinctive wines and celebrate your taste for adventure.
The fruit for this lively Riesling was sourced from blocks at our Deans and The Mound Vineyards in the Waipara Valley.
Gravelly loams over alluvial subsoil in the Waipara region offers minerality and elegant structure. A mild spring meant no frosts during flowering season. Perfectly timed Nor-West winds dried out canopies before
harvest in early April. The wines are very aromatic with citrus spice and mouth-watering acidity.
