Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The Seddon Vineyard in Marlborough is spectacular site, sheltered from the southern elements resulting in a very warm mesoclimate. Careful attention to vine health and balance in this block allows grapes to reach full flavour potential. Additionally, yield manipulation, water monitoring and balanced nutrition are a key focus when managing this vineyard. To enable perfect fruit in peak condition each bunch is hand picked in the cool of the morning and chilled down overnight before being pressed the following day.

Intense fresh cut white pear, complexed with cinnamon spice and floral notes dominate the aromatics, intermingling with a core of yellow stone fruit flavours. This off-dry wine has a finely textured palate, displaying underlying purity and power. A balanced level of acidity combined with concentrated fruit, creates excellent palate length and a lingering finish."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"One of the country's top Pinot Gris, this Awatere Valley wine is typically sturdy, beautifully scented and intense. Hand-picked and fermented in tanks (75 per cent) and seasoned French oak barriques (25 per cent), the 2016 vintage is a fleshy, dryish style (7 grams/litre of residual sugar), floral and luscious, soft and ripe, with vibrant, rich stone-fruit flavours, gentle acidity and a long, finely textured finish."
Number 2 & 4 1/2 Stars Cuisine Pinot Gris Tasting, March 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Grown on a terrace on the southern bank of the Awatere River, this wine offers plenty of those attractive, lifted ‘cooler valley’ aromatics. In the mouth it is dry, crisp and clean, with stonefruit, citrus and green apple notes carried by bright acids. “Calm and confident,” noted Cameron Douglas."
