Situated on the old Martinborough cattle saleyards, the vineyard is placed in the centre of the free draining silt loam over alluvial gravels soils of the Martinborough terrace.
The 0.75 hectare site was initially planted in 1998 with pinot noir clone 115. In 2013 and 2014 a high density (6700 vines/Ha) pinot noir abel and Clone 5 vineyard were added to the block.
Purchased in 2019 this 1 hectare block has a bit more clay in the soil which we believe will produce a more spice and mid palate weight. The block has been planted with 100% Abel clone pinot noir at a density of 4000 vines/Ha.
Purchased in 2020 this 6 hectare block has yet to be planted.
