Nelson
Nelson is nestled on the top end of the South Island, two hours to the west of its famous neighbour Marlborough. The wineries are mostly located on the plains, southwest of the town of Nelson, and up on the hills of Upper Moutere.



The region receives a lot more rain than its neighbour Marlborough, however also receives enough sunshine to balance out the rainfall. Nelson’s northern exposure gives it more second highest total hours of sunshine in the whole country. The soil structure tends to clay loams over hard clay subsoils.



Heavier reds like Cabernet Sauvignon don’t do so well in Nelson, where lighter reds like Pinot Noir and even Montepulciano have had more success. In the whites, Chardonnay of very high quality is being produced, with lesser amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Chenin Blanc are also cultivated.



Although it is one of the smaller wine regions, the fact that you can visit most of the wineries in a single day is a bonus!

Grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented in French oak barrels for this complex rendition of the variety. Lifted aromas of grapefruit, dried herb, lime zest and vanilla lead to a beautifully weighted palate that is finely textured and brightly flavoured. The wine offers lively fruit notes together with subtle oak infusion, making it engaging and highly enjoyable.
