This vineyard has a very clear style expression evolving from a traditional planting approach. Geoff Bunny sourced as many clones of Pinot Noir that were available in 1992 and planted them at random on the 1.1ha site. Diversity in planting material is an important part of¬†Terroir,¬†producing more complexity and an array of dark red fruit flavours. Now owned by Tim & Ruth Barton, the site is well sheltered and on the edge of the escarpment formed by the Huangarua River.
The alluvial loams are typical of Martinborough and help to give unique qualities when combined with ideal summer and autumn weather patterns, creating complex long-lived wines. An ideal accompaniment to any gamey red meat, duck, or New Zealand lamb.
