Marlborough – Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir.
Waimauku, Auckland – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Malbec.
This is a rapidly growing region in viticulture gaining worldwide recognition. The Wiffen Estate Vineyards in the Wairau Valley currently supply West Brook with a large percentage of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with further plantings on these sites being planned in the coming years. Further up the valley contracts are being signed to develop more vineyards.
Marlborough has more hours of sunshine than other regions in New Zealand and a long slow ripening season extends well into late April, with cool nights preserving acidity and concentrating fruit flavours.
The Winery and Estate vineyard is positioned in the tranquil Waikoukou Valley in the viticulturaly proven district of Waimauku, north-west of Auckland City.(In fact the first Sauvignon Blanc, grown commercially in New Zealand was from this region). Surrounded by a farming landscape, the vineyard is nestled in a unique growing micro-climate, growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Malbec.
