Matawhero Range

These are our core parcels of wine that we make every year and are true to our unique Gisborne terroir.



Matawhero
Single Vineyard Gisborne Gewürztraminer 2017

The fruit for this wine was grown at our Matawhero vineyard, the first vineyard in NZ to plant Gewürztraminer. Matawhero has a long history with producing this variety and everyone was drinking it even the Queen back in the 70s and 80s. Silt loam over a clay base provides ideal growing conditions for the Gewürztraminer. Lovely aromas of rose petal and lychee with Turkish delight and spice.

Beautiful with milder Asian foods, blue cheese and fruit desserts.

Single Vineyard Gisborne Pinot Rosé 2018

The grapes for this wine were carefully selected from the Tietjen vineyard. The clone used here is Dijon 777 and the vines are carefully managed to produce a quality table wine. With only two canes laid down for the growing season, the lower yields ensured early ripeness with intense flavours.

A lovely light Salmon colour with hints of pink. Strawberry and cherries with floral notes. A lovely aperitif or enjoy with Summer salads and seafood.
