A wise man once said “find the best vineyard sites you can because you can’t out perform your vineyards.” So they found the Sancta vineyard on the now world famous Felton Road in Bannockburn and set up shop.
Terra Sancta. It means sacred earth, holy land and there’s definitely something pretty bloody special about this little corner of the wine world. It’s home to the first vines planted in Bannockburn. And the firsts don’t stop there, these guys can also claim to be the first producer of a wine based Botanical Aperitivo in NZ, the first to plant the Lagrien variety, the first super premium Rosé and the first Rosé producer to make Michael Cooper’s “Super Classic” list.
They can also lay claim to one of Aotearoa’s most expensive (and best!) Rosés! Like fine vintage Champagne the guys at Terra Sancta only release this label in outstanding vintages. They use small parcels of the absolute best fruit they can lay their mits on from the first vines planted on their Felton Road estate from 1991 and 1995. From extremely low yielding vines, handpicked, handmade, aged in season oak for 17 months
The result? Quite simply one of the best NZ Rosés money can buy! In their own words – “If you have the chance to try this at least once in your life – seize the day!”
Damn, you're looking young for your age!
