Located just south of Seddon, our Ward Valley vineyard is sits at the southern frontier of Marlborough, making it a special place within a special place. The vineyard’s combination of high altitude, dry air, temperature extremes and deep clay creates a marginal climate and terroir that produces wines of rare complexity.
Aroma: Sweet black cherry, blueberry and dried herb with interwoven floral notes, smoked paprika and vanilla coffee.
Palate: Lively red cherry and ripe blackcurrants with a fresh acid balance and delicious round full palate and distinctive smoky character
