The fruit for this wine is sourced from subregions around Hawkes Bay. Vineyards in the north at Bay View, provide the finished wine with ripe stone fruit characters, while sites on the cooler river terraces above the Tukaekuri River at Puketapu and the Ngaruroro River at Maraekakaho add a more flinty, grapefruit note. These sites also provide natural acidity to the blended wine. Shoot thinning, leaf plucking and bunch thinning are all practised in the pursuit of quality.
