This vineyard was planted in 1975 in a fine sandy soil with pebbled ironstone. Dry-grown and trellised, the Syrah vines are encouraged to yield approximately 2 tonne per acre or 34 hectolitres per hectare. The Moritz Syrah vineyard is considered a ‘Premier Cru’.

Producer
Situated on the coastline of Hawke’s Bay, the Te Awanga sub-region enjoys a warm extended growing season with cleansing sea breezes. The unique proximity to the Pacific Ocean offers an excellent microclimate for producing wines with great fruit intensity. In 1986, when Tim Turvey and partner, Helma van den Berg, purchased a property in Hawke’s Bay, they were told it was “too cold to grow wine grapes.” Tim and Helma ignored this advice and planted 2,500 trees, including avocados, olives, bay trees, lavender and citrus. They also grafted and planted the vines, rammed the posts, ran the wires and trained young vines themselves. The winemaking philosophy of Clearview Estate is to make fruit driven wines, representative of the terroir of Te Awanga, Hawke’s Bay style. Reserve whites and reds are infused with the complexity of barrel ferments and French oak influence. Complexities are achieved from skin contact, whites, extended maceration, reds, lees stirring and contact, malolactic fermentation and SUPER ripe fruit. With over 40 soil types within the kilometer of land that the vineyard straddles, it ranges from shingle through silt loams to clay pan and well-drained loams. Tim Turvey has been working on the land in Hawke’s Bay for thirty-five years. Grape growing and winemaking for twenty-five years, he is the trophy holder of many gold medal wines. He set up Clearview from the start on bare land and manages all aspects of grape growing, winemaking and distribution for this small hands-on winery. Quality and passion are his hallmarks with a vision of continued excellence for the future.
