"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 a range of classic Marlborough wines from the Astrolabe vineyards."
