Now, however, it is perhaps the most important patch of ground in New Zealand for making red wines from Syrah and Bordeaux varieties. The gravel was laid down by the Ngaruroro River, which changed its course after a flood in 1867. Located northwest of Hastings, the whole area is almost completely planted with vines. Some thirty years ago, however, this now extremely valuable land was little regarded: it was not very good for grazing sheep, and nothing much would grow here. The first person to think about growing vines here was Chris Pask, who bought and planted a small block in 1981.

Handle the harvested grapes in the same way, and the wines will taste different.

The plant roots take up a restricted set of compounds, largely water and water-soluble mineral ions. But this observation can be a source of confusion because of the word mineral. These mineral ions aren’t really the same as mineral flavours. They are pretty much flavourless. There’s no real evidence for direct translocation of flavour compounds from soils to wines, even though this is a very seductive idea. We have spoken with a number of plant physiologists about this topic, and the overwhelming conclusion seems to be that there is no flavour transmission from soils to grapes, although soil chemistry could be influencing grape composition indirectly by altering gene expression and thus the synthesis of various compounds in the grapes.
