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.



Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

The grapes used for this vintage have produced a powerful, mouth-filling wine with fresh acidity, ripe melon and lime flavours. Fully tank fermented, this wonderful wine is fresh and vibrant with a crisp dry finish.

Enjoy now or over the next 3 years.
