Nick Mills on Biodynamics: 'Granted custodianship over this very special piece of land, the family's principle goal is to create vins de terroir, wines that are an accurate reflection of their surroundings. It is the micro-life in our soils which, in their ability to metabolise minerals into a form that vines can assimilate, are the link in between plants and the earth. This simple biology is the essential framework in producing a wine which is true to its soil and site. With this understanding comes an absolute respect for the land and life therein and it is for this reason that Rippon is run biodynamically.
The winery has an altitude of 330 metres. On the shores of the stunning Lake Wanaka. The combination of the high altitude with the cooling effect of the lake produces a vibrant fruity Pinot Noir with a relatively light colour and structure .Elegant , complexed ,with balance over power .
