In the province of Marlborough, high sunshine hours are moderated by a mild sea, while steep mountains keep moist and chilly winds at bay. A long, cool growing season leads to gorgeous flavours. Our goal is to make the Province wines in a classic Marlborough vein, emphasising the varietal intensity created by leafy vineyards, ripe fruit and cool-climate growing.
These are wines that provide focus and clarity on Marlborough’s fast-emerging sub-regions. Certainly regional and sometimes vineyard-specific, these wines highlight the attributes of individual sites and districts and their ensuing characteristics in the finished wines.
And now for something different. Wines in this range demonstrate Simon’s innovative treatment of specific parcels of fruit and his willingness to challenge the ‘everyday’ winemaking process. Simon loves to experiment while capturing the raw, ethereal and sometimes undiscovered qualities of individual grape varieties.
