Quality wines worthy of fine food and great company

From day one I have passionately believed that quality fruit in our Gimblett Gravels vineyards in the Hawkes Bay would produce outstanding wine in our bottles. While in the winery technical management and winemaking processes are necessarily complex, our aim has always been simple: to create quality wines worthy of fine food and great company.

That will always be our aim and I make a personal promise to diligently and unrelentingly keep on delivering just that. Life is short, so enjoy our wines today, but if you can trust yourself to cellar a bottle or two, you’ll be richly rewarded.

  • Having placed 1st equal in the latest dish Magazine tasting, our SQM 2013 Syrah is a very popular choice for Syrah lovers. Rich and suave on the palate with a wealth of warm, gently spiced fruit flavours, the wine has the fell of liquid silk as the tannins melt on the palate. A fine acidity carries the flavours and gives balance, structure and length on the finish. Available now online.
