The grapes were gently picked, allowing whole berries to remain intact. After a week long cold soak, each parcel was fermented with a combination of wild and cultured yeasts. The batches were plunged daily to extract the vibrant colour, flavour and delicate tannin structure. Parcels were pressed separately to a mix of French oak barrels, or remain in tank. In the spring after completing malolactic fermentation, each parcel and tank was tasted and blended.
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.”
– Jack Glover
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.
