Cambridge Road Vineyard is a small, 5.5 acre estate in the esteemed Martinborough Terrace Appellation.
Lance Redgewell and his family are the newest stewards of this vineyard, which was first planted in Pinot Noir and Syrah grapes in 1986; previously known as the Fraser Block. The vines are amongst the oldest in the country and Cambridge Road Vineyard continue their management with love and pride.
Lance says,"For us, small means beautiful. We focus our time and energy on perfecting and beautifying our land and cultivate it according to natural biodynamic principles. Our commitment is to making fine, handcrafted wines through meticulous viticulture and traditional winemaking techniques."
This playful skins driven wine hails from sunny Gisborne, dominantly farmed by the Maestro that is James Millton and his team but also fleshed out with PG and Chard that we fermented in our huge Totara cask. Skins work floats all the way up to 4 months contact but on average gentle extraction has delivered a wine of juicy density and immediate appeal. Aromatic varieties dominate and tempt the palate which is pleased with a dry chalky feel and no hint of sweetness. Bottled raw with no adds. Enjoy!
