Productdetails

Grava was founded in 2014 by experienced winemaker Alistair Gardner, his wife Karla Falloon and her family. The well-established vineyard sits on the alluvial soils of the Southern Wairarapa in the heart of the winegrowing region of Martinborough. It produces high quality wines from Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Alistair is grava’s viticulturist and winemaker and uses traditional and modern viticultural and oenological methods in the vineyard and winemaking operations. The grapes are all hand-harvested and grown using sustainable practices with Alistair overseeing all stages of vine upkeep, crop growth and fruit maturity to produce the best quality fruit for processing and fermentation. Alistair’s attention to detail, extensive international knowledge and dedication to excellence characterises the grava vineyard and winery operations.


"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly concentrated and well-packed with a core of lime fruit entwined with subtle toast and honeysuckle detail and mineral elements. This has good depth and presence, unfolding subtle nuances. Medium in sweetness and light-medium bodied, the palate has rich lime fruit flavours along with honey and mineral nuances and a mouthwatering mineral edge. The palate balances a soft unctuousness with fine fruit extract and phenoli textures, and refreshing, lacy acidity. The fruit has good depth and weight, and the wine aling a delicate textured line, leading to a moderately sustained finish. This is a rich-fruited medium Riesling with lime and toast flavours and subtle honeysuckle and mineral elements on a fine-textured, mouthwatering palate. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 5 years. 18.5/20" - Raymond Chan
