The confluence of the might Wairau and Waihopai rivers is the site of the Braided River vineyards in Marlborough
Created over thousands of years, these vineyards showcase perfect soil structures and microclimates that consistently produce grapes with concentrated flavours and excellent varietal expression.
The river rocks, stones and free draining alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils of Braided River's Marlborough vineyards restrict the root and shoot growth of the vines. This allows the viticulturist to manage the vines in a controlled fashion to keep the vine in balance and thus focus the vines energy into the fruit ripening process.
The end result is grapes with concentrated, ripe-flavours and aromas with excellent varietal expression. The depth of character of the fruit handed on to the winemaker is outstanding.
