Our family estate - Muritai Vineyard
Muritai, meaning Sea Breeze in Maori, nestles between the bluffs of Blind River in the SE corner of Marlboroughs winemaking region. Recent research highlighted olfactory differences between the Awatere and Wairau valleys. Wines from the Awatere have a distinctive style, fresher and with a minerality not found elsewhere in Marlborough. The Blind River Valley is developing as a distinctive sub region with its own style, the most recognizable element being a flinty, smoky character. Muritai was planted to 75 acres of Sauvignon Blanc and 10 acres of Riesling, mostly in 2004.
