Tupari takes its name from the dramatic cliffs forming the Upper Awatere Valley of Marlborough, New Zealand where the Turnbull family and pioneering winemaker Glenn Thomas have collaborated to create restrained, elegant wines.
The climate in the Awatere valley is characterised by low rainfall, high sunshine hours and a large diurnal temperature shift. The unique terroir of the Upper Awatere Valley creates grapes characterised by a distinct minerality and flavour intensity. The Tupari vineyard itself is situated in the upper reaches of the valley’s grape-growing zone. Its northerly aspect allows for maximum interception of the sun’s hot rays, which also serve as a heat bank when absorbed by the stones under the vines. These rocks radiate warmth long into the night, complemented by regular cooling sea breezes that flow up the valley in the late afternoon.
Holistic and sustainable viticulture and winemaking practices are used wherever possible resulting in pure, fresh wines and a 0 % chemical residue rating.
The family philosophy is that the wines are made in the vineyard so careful work, thinning shoots and bunches resulting in low yields, combined with experienced winemaking results in typicity and character of the Awatere, represented by these fresh, balanced wines.
