Kiwa Vineyard

Planted on the Martinborough Terrace alluvial gravels in 1989 by Graham and Gill Cleland this 2ha site is one of the finest in the district. It consistently produces wines with pure expressive Martinborough style. Vine age, good shelter and a blend of UCD Davis clones 5, 6 and 13 merge into classic wines of great depth and character. The hallmark of this vineyard is the savory, earthy undertones combining with beautiful ripe black, red and green fruit flavours which are always expressed in the resulting Pinot Noirs. These characters are consistent from year to year ensuring the Terroir is paramount in the bottle.
