Background

History

The name Ara means ‘pathway’ or ‘stepping stone’ in Maori. It is a single estate so all the grapes come from their unique parcel of land in the Wairau Valley. Bordered by rivers on three sides, with the foothills of the Southern Alps to the west, this combination of maritime climate, soils and altitude means their location produces some of the best grapes in the region. Ara belong to Sustainable Winegrowing NZ, an initiative of the New Zealand Wine Growers’ association. By practicing sustainable winegrowing, replanting native species and avoiding treated timber, they are minimising their impact on the environment.

Regional info

Ara's estate lies at the elevated end of the Wairau Valley in Marlborough, a region which is wedged between mountain ranges and the ocean, near the top of the South Island. Being further from the sea (30km) and at higher altitude (100m), nights are even cooler here than in other parts of the region. This slows down ripening, creating elegant acidity and more intense flavours. The relatively infertile, free-draining soil is very much like that in Graves and Médoc in Bordeaux.
