Central Otago, New Zealand
The Archangel vineyard is nurtured by a team of expert pioneers of the Kiwi wine industry, led by viticulturists Gary Ford and David Jordon, and winemaker Peter Bartle. They follow a sustainable regime though they are hoping to gradually become completely organic in the near future.
Their vineyards lie within the most amazing and ancient landscape in the Upper Clutha Valley of Central Otago, on the South Island of New Zealand. The natural glacial surface it lies on was formed when the glaciers surrounding the area melted and deposited a mix of loess, gravel, schist and mineral quartz soils over the valley. Framed by the Dunstan Mountains to the East and the Clutha River running through the valley, the vineyard perfectly captures the magical beauty of this southernmost wine region of the world.
