Seddon Pinot Gris
Vintage 2022 
Grown on the southern bank of the Awatere River, the Seddon Vineyard sits on an elevated and exposed site in southern Marlborough. The unique micro-climate and papa soil imparts concentrated fruit flavours and a perfumed bouquet of baking spices, with a finely textured creamy finish from time on yeast lees.
The Marlborough growing season started off well with very little frost pressure during spring. Flowering went without a glitch, due healthy soil moisture levels the canopies looked lush and vibrant. The start of 2022 summer was slightly colder; February was below the long-term average in temperature however the weather settled with a slightly damp autumn.
This Pinot Gris is sourced from our iconic Seddon Vineyard on the southern bank of the Awatere River. The vineyard site is situated on the southern bank of the Awatere River in Marlborough, sheltered from the cooling weather patterns resulting in a warm meso-climate. The loam soils have a distinctive soft clay "papa-rock" base allowing grapes to easily achieve physiological ripeness and fruit concentration. The vineyard has several terraces gradually gaining in altitude away from the riverbank, with vine ages between 15-20 years old.
