Te Kaiaranga is located in New Zealand’s Martinborough appellation. Here, the vines grow less vigorously in the cool, breezy conditions, so yields are lower and the flavours more intense. Long dry autumns provide the right balance of warm days (creating ripeness) and cool nights (providing elegance) for producing top quality Pinot Noir and other early-ripening varieties.
Vavasour is situated in the Awatere Valley – a sub-appellation of Marlborough. Huge boulders, carried down the Awatere River, are strewn across the valley floor. The vineyards are partially protected from the prevailing north-westerly winds by a broad range of mountain peaks. Awatere valley wines are particularly prized for their intense aromatics, ripe flavours, dynamic textures and concentration.
Hawke’s Bay & Martinborough
We took an innovative position of pursuing a multi-regional approach to wine growing meaning we didn’t have to compromise. After discovering the promise of New Zealand, the Peabody family decided on the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing district in Hawke’s Bay and Te Muna Road in Martinborough to produce a collection of wines that speak very much of their place.
Inspired by Marlborough’s coastal beauty, Boatshed Bay embodies the life and colour of the Marlborough Sounds on the South Island of New Zealand. For many years we have proudly crafted wines from our picturesque vineyards of this region.
