Our philosophy is wholly centered on making seriously good wine. All our decisions in the vineyard, and in the winery are based around the question “is it going to make the wine better?” We like wines to express their place – to speak of somewhere-ness rather than of a same-ness , we want you to be able to taste this in our wines. We are heavily influenced by organics and bio-dynamics and have a very hands on approach in both the vineyard and the winery. We use a blend of old and new world winemaking techniques combined with respect for the place the grapes are grown.
2014 marked the 35th anniversary of the first plantings at Te Whare Ra and also the release of our wines with the newly updated Single Vineyard 5182 series labels. We released our aromatics with this new label as well as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. This journey started out in 1979 with the Te Whare Ra original plantings which are now the oldest vines in the Marlborough region. We have chosen to use our organic certification number 5182 to celebrate what this place has now become.
5182 is of huge significance to us as it is our vineyard designation number from BIOGRO New Zealand. This number represents all our hard work and effort over the past 11 years to achieve our organic certification. Our SV 5182 wines represent all the things that we feel are important – provenance, organic farming and authentic, world class wines from Marlborough.
