The Track Vineyard is in the world renowned Gimblett Gravels region of Hawke’s Bay. All of our red varieties are grown here and include; Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Montepulciano. Our Single Vineyard Chardonnay is also from this site. The Gimblett Gravels area has proven itself to be one of New Zealand’s prized grape growing districts. Our site has a little more top soil than most of the gravels which we believe give our wines a distinct volume and richness. 2013 and 2014 were stellar vintages for Hawke’s Bay and our Track Vineyard has really come into its own providing us with some outstanding wines. The Track Vineyard is Sustainable Winegrowing NZ accredited.
Ohiti Valley Road
We have been contracting fruit from this valley for years as it consistently provides us with quality Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The vineyards lie on an old river bed and act as a ‘heat trap’ ripening all varieties easily every year. We are very excited at a new project involving many hectares of the new Chardonnay clone 548 grown by the Gunn and Mead family which looks very promising indeed.
