The vineyard is located east of the Blenheim township, close to the sea, in the lower Wairau Valley.
Soils: Deep fertile, free draining soils.
Climate: Slightly cooler than the rest of the Marlborough Valley, with a slower, longer ripening period.
Regional characteristics and contribution to uniqueness of flavours:
The young age of these vines and extremely healthy canopy has resulted in the presence of intense herbaceous characters. This vineyard is situated on free-draining fertile alluvial soils which also contribute tropical and capsicum characters and high intensity of flavour.
The fruit was sourced from a single vineyard owned by Peter and Kath Campbell on the fertile, free draining soils of the lower Wairau Valley. The fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested in the cool of the evening at optimum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness.
