River-T Estate, Waitaki Valley
The area was first planted in 2001 and the vineyards are mostly small, intensively managed and produce a range of distinctive cool climate wines. The Vineyard is 5km from Kurow, North Otago
Long warm autumns lead to one of the longest ripening periods in NZ, with harvest occurring at the end of April or early May.
The complex geology origins with limestone, alluvial greywacke and schist means the Waitaki wines are notable for their distinctive minerality, crisp acidity, and complexity of fruit flavours.
