Our Wines and Viticulture

We are passionate about producing the best quality wine and therefore we are passionate about producing the best quality grapes.

 

At Silverton Estate we firmly believe that “less is more” with shoot thinning, canopy management, leaf-plucking and bunch thinning being used to create an optimal crop.  Open canopy methods ensure minimal disease pressure.

 

We ensure our practices are sustainable and within regulatory guidelines. We are also a proudly accredited member of SWNZ- Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand.

 

Hand-picking is an option for select vintages to ensure minimal bruising and degradation of fruit.
