"Edelzwicker is a centuries old, Alsatian wine term taken from the German words ‘Edel’ (noble) and ‘Zwicker’ (blend). A true Edelzwicker is made from noble grape varieties all picked on the same day and from the same vineyard, giving a pure expression of the vintage and terroir. All four of our noble grapes went into the making of this wine. Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Viognier" Petane
"Petane Wines is situated in Eskdale, Hawke's Bay, part of the Esk Valley wine growing region. Esk Valley enjoys a maritime influence where the hot dry summer days experience a cooling sea breeze in the late afternoon.
This natural thermostat allows for gradual sugar accumulation and slow acid reduction giving natural berry ripeness, sublime flavour profiles and fine structure and balance to our wine. This maritime climate is ideal for the varieties we grow - Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Viognier, Pinot Blanc and Gamay.
Our vines grow on deep alluvial river sands and stone, left behind by the Esk River. This free draining soil allows the vine roots to reach deep into the earth helping us to achieve full flavoured and true to variety wine styles."
