Yealands Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours. This wine is a blend of two different blocks on the property – one warmer, sheltered inland block and a coastal block. The wine brings together in harmony the diverse spectrums of the blocks; the warmer site contributing the expressive aromatics and the cooler site giving the mineral backbone and length.
In 2008, a wild and rugged stretch of coastline on the north-eastern tip of New Zealand’s South Island became home to one of the most sustainable wineries in the world. They opened the doors to a state-of-the-art, custom-built winery on 08.08.08, and became the first winery in the world to be Toitū carbonzero certified from inception. Seaview Vineyard, the home of Yealands Wines, was once a rugged, rolling stretch of pastoral land, that was thought to be too wild, windswept and undulating for growing grapes. Never being shy of a challenge they saw huge potential in this sensational coastal location. Today, Seaview Vineyard is one of the most dramatic and exciting vineyards in Marlborough, its folded landscape creating micro climates of growing conditions that provide thrilling variety across various varietals.
