Vinultra is located in Marlborough, on the East Coast of the Waihopai Valley, in one of New Zealand's richest, most beloved and best-known wine-growing areas. The varieties cultivated are the renowned Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir (the preferred varieties of this territory) as well as the well-known Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer, which are also widespread in the remaining parts of New Zealand. Marlboroug in particular is located in the northernmost part of the South Island on the east coast, inhabited by 41,000 people.
It is the largest wine-growing region of New Zealand with about 22.000 hectares of vineyards in total and it boasts very particular soil and climate conditions, very favorable to viticulture with generally long and dry summers and a lot of daylight, and cool and windy nights, ideal conditions to obtain a perfect ripening of the grapes that will give wines with strong aromatic scents and intense flavors. In particular, the Vinultra winery is located in Southern Valley's, just 37 km from the ocean at 100 m above sea level and has 22 hectares of vineyards.
The wines are produced from individual vineyards located on undulating river terraces, each with a particular soil composition that distinguishes them. The training system used is VSP (Vertical Shoot Positioned Trellis) with multiple pruning regimes aimed at giving greater consistency and complexity to the resulting wines. Vinification method: the pressing is carried out with pneumatic presses and tangential flow filtration (TFF) is applied. Only French oak barriques are used for ageing (only a small percentage of new barriques). The whites generally ferment in steel tanks. Where possible, indigenous yeasts are used.
