The Hawkdun Rise vineyard is small, planted in 1994. The vineyard is planted in predominantly Pinot Noir with a small amount of Gewürztraminer. The scale of the vineyard is just enough for the couple to manage “with a little help from my friends,” says John.
The Hawkdun Rise philosophy is quality rather than quantity and this has paid off with the vineyard’s 2005 signature HR Pinot Noir - the first vintage produced under John and Suzanne’s guidance - winning a silver medal in the 2007 Air New Zealand Wine Awards. A Gold Medal in the same awards followed this for their 2006 HR Pinot Noir.Enquire Now
