A Case [Six Bottles]
Located in the heart of Marlborough’s acclaimed Wairau Valley our Matthews Lane vineyard produces fruit with intensity and purity. There is a lot of variation throughout the Matthews Lane vineyard, producing characteristics of citrus and lime through to fleshy stonefruit, pineapple through to intense gooseberry.
“Fuder wines develop greater complexity and refinement because oak doesn’t dominate. The ratio of
wine in contact with the barrel surface is less than smaller barrels so oak pick up is less. The staves of
Fuder barrels are thicker which means the temperature of ferment tends to be warmer and we find the
fruit characters gain greater depth and complexity,” Marcel Giesen says.
We have supplied over one million vine cuttings to nurseries in Marlborough from this vineyard, so it could be said that many of the region’s vines have originated from our Matthews Lane vineyard.
