From the Waihopai Valley, this Single Vineyard Pinot Noir is hand tended to and delivers a beautiful complex wine representative of the special place it comes from.

They are then nurtured with meticulous hands-on viticulture to ensure fruit produces highly concentrated flavour. Our winemaking expertise then allows these wines to speak for themselves, their purity becoming a showcase of the land.
