Hawkes Bay

Nobilo vineyards can be found in three different locations throughout Hawkes Bay, with a wide range of soils and climatic conditions. This gives winemaker David Edmonds plenty of vibrant, ripe fruit from which to craft Nobilo's generously fruity Merlot and richly textured Pinot Gris.

Hawkes Bay is New Zealand’s second largest and oldest wine region. The varied topography and wide range of soil types, from fertile silty loams to free-draining shingle, produces a considerable range of wine styles in this large region. There are 22 categories of soil types on the Heretaunga Plains alone, from stones to hard pans to heavy silts.

Ripening dates for a single grape variety can vary by as much as three weeks between the warm red metal soils on the plain to the cool, higher altitude vineyards of central Hawkes Bay.

Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape variety but the long sunshine hours attract a high percentage of later ripening red grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
