J&M Neate USA
The changing directions of major rivers throughout the Hawkes Bay shaped valleys and terraces cultivating a variety of soil types from clay loam, to limestone to sands and gravels.
The gravelly coastal areas around Bay View and Te Awanga produce exceptional Chardonnay. The inland areas of Esk Valley, Havelock North and Maraekakaho are prodominently terraced absorbing the sun throughout the day and remaining relatively warm at night. These areas a planted with the red varieties such as Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
Malcolm can recommend local and other excellent New Zealand wines from the lodge’s cellar to compliment your evening meal.
