PRODUCER
Wairarapa lies at the southern end of the North Island, not far from the capital, Wellington. Having grown up in the shadow of its most famous sub-district, Martinborough, Wairarapa is now developing its own reputation for characterful, conscientiously made wines as well as outstanding value for money. Mount Holdsworth is an exclusive range produced for us by Matahiwi Estate, a family-owned winery in the heart of Wairarapa. All three varieties are sourced solely from the estate’s single 80-hectare vineyard, allowing experienced winemaker Jane Cooper to fine-tune every aspect of production from bud-break to bottling.

VINEYARD
This wine comes from the typical free-draining alluvial loam soil of Wairarapa. Viticulture follows Sustainable Winegrowing guidelines, with cover crops substituting for pesticides and fertilisers. A mix of clones and rootstocks provides blending options, while intimate attention to detail governs decisions around canopy management and picking dates. Yields are restricted and bunches exposed to enhance ripeness and intensity.

WINERY
The wine was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, after which a small proportion was aged for seven months in older French oak barrels.
