In 1985, Peter Vavasour identified the Awatere Valley as the new frontier for New Zealand winegrowing and planted the first grapes there in 1986. The climate here is noteworthy for its wide diurnal temperature swings. Rainfall ranges from 279-406 millimeters (11-16 inches) a year, arid by any measurement.

Named after Peter’s son, Felix’s Vineyard was planted in 2003 at a select site within our “Favourite” vineyard. The coarse alluvium soils here are comprised of stones and pebbles mixed with clay and loam, and are known for contributing depth, tannin structure and longevity to our Pinot Noir.

Winery Tasting Notes

Our Single-Vineyard wines are pure expressions of their variety and true reflections of the terroir of our estate vineyards.

Aroma

The 2015 Felix’s Vineyard Pinot Noir displays dark plum and cherry aromas, with subtle hints of spice.

Palate

Ripe and rich layers of fruit on the palate lead to a velvety finish.

Winemaking

This special bottling of Pinot Noir showcases the very best of our estate and is made only in years when fruit is of exceptional quality. Careful canopy and yield management, including leaf plucking and shoot thinning, ensure great concentration and character. Highquality, low-yielding clones (5 & 115) have been carefully matched to individual micro-blocks within our vineyard. To extract optimum color, flavour and tannin we use traditional, Burgundian hand-plunging techniques during fermentation. 14 months in French oak barriques provides additional aromatics, flavours and structure.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

It's not just the grinding winds from the west or the imposing presence of Tapuae-O-Uenuku, the towering peak that looms over Marlborough's Awatere Valley. It's not just the deep, rocky soils formed millions of years ago by relentless glaciers that molded the landscape. It's not just the arid climate marked by sundrenched days and cold nights. It's the combination of all those things together that shape the inimitable character, flavours and textures of Vavasour wines.
