Roll over: A local expression of the rich, dry styles from Alsace.

A mixture of German clones planted in 1988 and 1999, the vines are now reaching good maturity. The intention in the vineyard is to balance lower sugars with acidity and phenolic ripeness. To achieve this, they employ substantial shoot positioning and green thinning, shoulder removal, and light leaf removal on the Eastern side of the canopy. 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 21st 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.
