Managing the vineyards of Karikari is very much a work in progress. While winegrowing is an ancient craft one of the basics of growing high quality wine is to manage each vineyard according to its own character of soils, climate, vine varieties and native biota. At Karikari this process is a mere ten years old and we are learning as we go. All that we can be sure of after ten years is that this place will grow wine of remarkable character and of a quality that will be noted by the international fine wine community The first stage of the vineyard was initiated in 1998, when 8 trial varieties were planted on 4.5 hectares. These were cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, merlot, syrah, malbec, viognier, sémillon and grenache. Since then chardonnay plantings have increased, while pinotage and cabernet franc have replaced sémillon and grenache. In total the Karikari vineyard estate covers 40 hectares on the northern slopes of the Toupiroroa range. Read less
