As the days lengthen and temperatures rise, Spring beckons us to savor the vibrant flavors and aromas of New Zealand's exceptional white wines. Beyond the iconic Sauvignon Blanc, our diverse portfolio offers an array of options to elevate your springtime gatherings and culinary adventures. Join us as we journey through the nuances of each varietal, celebrating the essence of the season in every glass.

Methode Traditionellé: A Toast to New Beginnings

Embrace the spirit of renewal with our Methode Traditionellé sparkling wines, crafted with traditional techniques and New Zealand's abundant sunshine. Delicate bubbles dance across the palate, revealing layers of white pear, apples, and citrus. Perfect for festive occasions or intimate gatherings, these wines are versatile companions to a variety of cuisines, from seafood to Asian dishes.

Chardonnay: Fresh Complexity

Rediscover the noble Chardonnay, reimagined by New Zealand's skilled winemakers.  Gone are the days of oak and butter, now elegant and restrained our Chardonnays offer a spectrum of flavors, from tropical fruits to citrus and minerality. Whether from the sun-drenched slopes of Hawke's Bay or the cooler climates of the South Island, each bottle is a testament to the diversity of our terroir and are worthy of ageing for more complexity over time.

Riesling: A Symphony of Flavors

Indulge in the bright, aromatic delights of Riesling, a grape variety perfectly suited to New Zealand's South Island climate. From bone dry to lusciously sweet, our Rieslings showcase a spectrum of flavors, from stonefruit and spice to citrus and minerality. Pair with Asian cuisine or light seafood dishes to elevate your springtime dining experience.

Sauvignon Blanc: A Taste of Terroir

Discover the essence of New Zealand in every sip of our Sauvignon Blanc, a grape variety that thrives in our southerly regions. Vibrant and effusive, these wines boast zingy acidity and fresh herbal notes, reflecting the unique terroir of Marlborough and beyond. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with light spring salads or seafood, our Sauvignon Blanc captures the essence of the season.

Pinot Gris: Elegance in Every Glass

Experience the allure of Pinot Gris, a rising star in New Zealand's white wine scene. Fresh and full-flavored, with hints of apple, pear, and spice, these wines offer a taste of Alsace-inspired elegance.
