The fruit for this wine is sourced from vineyard sites around the Hawkes Bay. Vineyards in the north at Bay View provide the finished wine with ripe stone fruit flavours while sites on the terraces above the Tutaekuri River at Puketapu and the Ngaruroro River at Maraekakaho add a more flinty, grapefruit note. These sites also provide natural acidity to the blended wine. Shoot thinning, leaf plucking and bunch thinning are all practiced in these vineyards in the pursuit of quality.
