The aim is to strike better balance between number of vines per hectare, type of trellising, soil types and land aspect so that the vineyard is better able to produce quality fruit with a concentration of flavour. Vines are planted to the gentle undulating slopes of King Valley as well as the second terrace flats leading down to King River. The relationship between Merlot, climate and conditions of the vineyard are very complex, Pizzini have found the right combination and have honed their vines to produce a mouthfilling Tuscan style of Merlot.
