Aromas of ripe red and dark berry mingle with cherry aromas, supported by subtle spicy oak.
Juicy cherries lead into a smooth palate, delivering a long finish with fine tannins and balanced acidity.
Rosemary rubbed butterflied lamb leg, slow roasted over the BBQ.
Will age beautifully over the next five years.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS The 2018 vintage started well with warm weather during flowering ensuring a well balanced crop. The following warm to hot summer meant for an early harvest for our Pinot Noir and it was a race to get the fruit off. The 2018 wines are approachable with a generous palate. OAK REGIME A portion of this wine was aged in French oak barriques, while the balance was matured in stainless steel to retain fruit character.
4 Stars – Raymond Chan
We live amongst the vineyards in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. For us it’s all about lifestyle. We’re lucky to enjoy the simple things from the land; like fresh crayfish, scallop season and wild venison. And because our wines are available in cities around the world, we also thrive on what the world has to offer. Pretty much the best of both worlds we reckon.
Our fresh accessible style of wine is made to be shared. Crisp whites, rich aromatics and reds with depth and purity.Everyday wines to enjoy on any occasion.
“When friends pop round, it’s our ‘go to’ wine. You could say it’s our house red.”

The South Island of New Zealand covers over 151,215km2 ofrugged mountains, lakes, glaciers, ski fields and rivers. As proud guardians of the land our iconic vineyards are located in some of New Zealand's defining wine regions: Marlborough, Central Otago and the Waipara Valley. Each location has been selected with care and foresight; and as a result we aim to interfere as little as possible once the grapes arrive in the hands of the winemakers. Each vintage we create a portfolio of pure, expressive, balanced, vibrant and honest wines.
