The Vineyard

Our Queen Victoria vineyard is located in the Motueka area, in the heart of a region known for its apple orchards, kiwifruit and hops. Our grapes are grown on very stony free-draining soils giving lovely fruit clarity and varietal intensity.

Winemaker's Notes

Aromatic and fresh Sauvignon Blanc flavours were encouraged prior to vintage through careful canopy management. The fruit was de-stemmed and pressed immediately after harvest and a cool fermentation was initiated in stainless steel tanks to retain the clean, fresh aromatic fruit characters.

"Ripe, dense fruit charateristics showing the wine's typicity with a gentle citrus and lemon peel note. Finish is well balanced, long, smoky and flinty."
