Our vineyard in upper Moutere, Nelson - Whenua Matua
Whenua Matua, ‘significant lands’, is our vineyard located in the upper Moutere region of Nelson. Set amongst the sun-drenched slopes of upper Moutere, Nelson with spectacular views of our maunga Wharepapa and Pukeone, it is here that our roots run deep.
The changing angles and orientations of our Whenua Matua vineyard blocks lend themselves to the complexities of winemaking. Each parcel of land has intricacies that require experience and time on the whenua. Knowledge that only comes from spending time connecting with and getting to know the land. Intricacies that come through in each Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Albariño.
Terroir characterised by ancient clay soils and generous sunshine, Whenua Matua demands its vines work hard to anchor their roots, intensifying expressions of the land with every year.
These single vineyard wines hold great structure, exceptional varietal characteristics and texture.
