THE DURVILLEA STORY
All Along our shores, holding fast to the rocks at low tide, is the seaweed Durvillea, named after the Captain of L'Astrolabe Dumont d'Urville. For me, this seaweed defines the ruggedness of our rocky coast.
The Durvillea grapes are grown at carefully selected sites across the Marlborough region and harvested at precisely the right moment to preserve the purity and intensity of flavour in my winemaking. Durvillea is the second label to Astrolabe wines and is made in a classic Marlborough style with parcels of fruit from the Astrolabe vineyards.
