This wine comes from a single block (S1) at Yealand’s Seaview Vineyard - New Zealand’s most coastal vineyard. Here our vines battle against the elements producing small berries with thick skins and wonderfully rich and intense flavors. This single block - S1 - is a north facing block that lies on a plateau 525 feet above sea level 2.2 miles from the ocean. The soils are wind-blown, loess, silt or loamy material composed largely of granular-sized grains that are loosely cemented by calcium carbonate. The vines were planted in 2007 and are monitored daily. [+]
