Our wines

Below are the wines currently available.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc from Waipara Valley is more likely to have tropical and gooseberry flavours, unlike the herbaceous Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.  We also have low crop yields to increase fruit intensity and flavour.

Pinot Gris

This lovely aromatic grape produces wines that range from full-bodied and spicey through to lighter and fruitier styles.  Grown on our limeloader vineyard our Estates Pinot Gris is a drier style, with the Grand Reserve a richer, more Alace style.

Riesling

Our Riesling vines are amongst the oldest on our vineyard and are a mix of clones to provide depth of flavour.   The cool nights and hot days during summer produce grapes with great acidity which we balance out with some residual sugar.

Pinot Noir Rose

Our Pinot Noir Rose is made with the saignee method where the grapes are soaked in open topped fermenters for 24 hours, then bled off to produce a stunning fruit driven Pinot Noir Rose.  Think strawberries and cream with a crisp finish!

Pinot Noir

Our Pinot Noir vines are the oldest on the property, first planted in 2002. The vineyards produce wine with intense dark fruit and earthy flavours helped by ageing in french oak barriques (20- 25% new).  They do consistently well on the international stage with the  Grand Reserve Pinot Noir 2014 picking up a top 7 New Zealand Pinot Noir from Decanter (UK).

Tempranillo

Tempranillo is the grape in red Rioja, those rich sumptuous reds from Spain.  We are one of a handful of New Zealand vineyards producing Tempranillo and we believe we are the second most southerly vineyard in the world! All the wines are delicious examples of cool climate Tempranillo with reserves only made in the hottest years.
