    What was once a stony sheep paddock back in the 80s (bought by a stash of cash from the sale of herd cows) has become one of Martinborough’s premier wine labels, up there with best of Aotearoa and a glowing international reputation to boot.

    Produced from 30 year plus old vines from their vineyard called (wait for it) Craighall, barrel fermented with indigenous yeasts, this is a label that is a class act year in, year out. The latest ’15 vintage hasn’t disappointed either with 5 Star reviews from Michael Cooper, Bob Campbell, Sam Kim, Raymond Chan and Lisa Perrotti-Brown writing for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.

    We thought Cooper summed it pretty nicely really – “This memorable Martinborough wine has notable richness, complexity and downright drinkability.”

    A Chardonnay for the Chardonnay lover with a taste for the top shelf stuff. Drink it now until 2025.
