Our main vineyard is at the top end of the Wairau Valley - a significantly cooler area than other parts of the valley closer to the sea and with a day/night temperature variation that can be extremely high. The temperature characteristics of this area aligned with very deep, free-draining and stony soils produce wines that show an interesting range of fruit characters (more citrus than other parts of the valley) and a distinctive mineral note.

  • Italy is well known for many things and one of them is an inordinate number of different wine grapes. The variety (400-500) is practically dizzying. That sort of diversity is also present in Italian sparkling wine where a number of traditions persist. One of the best known is Prosecco. These wines are made with the Glera grape and fermented in s... Read More

  • Something to digest: When one thinks of Barbaresco the names that most readily come to mind are Gaja and Giacosa. These producers have in many ways shaped how we've come to understand this sometimes inscrutable corner of Piedmonte. For years however, those in the know have been whispering the name of another producer who belongs among the top ec... Read More

  • Columbia Valley, Columbia Gorge, and Walla Walla Valley: a triumvirate of outstanding wine producing regions with a fascinating twist.

  • We’re now on episode five of cellar clean-up, today focusing on a handful of White Meritage Blends. I would love to have had additional examples to compare these wines to, but that was not to be. It’s a fascinating, if tiny category of wines. In the face of both the popularity of and obviously suitable sites for red Meritage Blends one could be ... Read More

  • Today we are faced with an ever expanding selection of wine we might know little about: Red Blends. We know little about them because it’s sometimes hard to know what’s in one. They are in some respects unfortunate victims of their own success. Their proliferation makes them hard to define, and sometimes hard to compare. Though there is however ... Read More
