Roll over: A delicate chardonnay with retained acidity and lower sugar levels.

The aim in the vineyard is to produce a delicate chardonnay, retain acidity, and harvest at lower sugar levels. To do this we employ substantial shoot positioning, rigorous crop selection and limited leaf removal.  These vines are now in third year of being grown without irrigation. All vineyard work is undertaken by dedicated family members, friends and community. Hand harvested and hand sorted in the vineyard, picking took place on the 15th of March.

As part of the original 1880’s subdivision of Martinborough, the Princess Street vineyard is formed by the early settler’s concept of a small farmlet. Originally divided into four 1-acre sections and two 4-acre lots, the property merged into one with the planting of the original vines 100-years later by Jack McCreanor, in 1986. Over the years, the vineyard has been influenced and shaped by some of the giants of the Wairarapa wine fraternity, to form the On Giants’ Shoulders vineyard that we know today.
