Vineyards and Winemaking
This single-vineyard site is situated on the southern bank of the Awatere River in Marlborough, sheltered from the cooling southern weather patterns, resulting in a warm meso-climate. The loam soils have a distinctive soft clay "papa-rock" base allowing grapes to easily achieve physiological ripeness and fruit concentration in a cool climate region. The vineyard has several terraces gradually gaining in altitude away from the riverbank. The Pinot Gris vines planted at Seddon vineyard are between 13-18 years old.
Soils And Viticulture
A near-perfect growing season led up to the 2020 harvest with fruit in pristine condition. The summer was dry with high sunshine hours during the day and the cooler nights that are typical for Marlborough. Yields were at their optimum level and the stable autumn weather allowed us to extend the hangtime of the fruit on the vines to achieve physiological ripeness.
Rich, almost luscious pinot gris with ripe peach, tree fruit, mixed spice, floral, honeysuckle and brioche flavours. An initial hint of sweetness helps promote a silken and sumptuous texture, although the wine finishes dry. 94 PointsBob Campbell MW
