These are our core parcels of wine that we make every year and are true to our unique Gisborne terroir.
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.
The perfect Summer Rosé, made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, clones Dijon 777 and Dijon 115. Flavours of Strawberries and cream with a floral note and a lovely dry finish.
A lovely aperitif or enjoy with Summer Salads and seafood.
