"Intensely aromatic and enticing with passionfruit, feijoa, Gala apple and lemon/lime zest aromas on the nose. The powerfully expressed palate offers terrific fruit purity and persistency together with juicy fruit flavours and vibrant acidity, finishing gorgeously long and delicious" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2021

"Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is full and intense, packed with aromas of lychee, cassis and lime, overlying fresh-cut grass, currant leaf and white pepper. Medium-light bodied, vibrant aromas of lychee, cassis and lime, unfolds white pepper and currant leaf. The acidity is mouth-watering, flows with good energy. Herbaceous character lingers and is alluring; lends a clean and thirst-quenching finish. Match with lemongrass fish and steamed clams in saffron butter broth over the next 2-3 years" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Aug 2021

A riot of ripe citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Loaded with juicy rock melon, lychee, vibrant stone fruits and lemongrass, the mouth-watering finish on this one deserves some serious savouring.

"Bright, pale straw-yellow with some depth and a green hue, lighter on edge. The nose is soft with an elegant scent of stonefruit citrus intermix a light note of vanilla cream and a hint of almond. Medium-full bodied, more expressive on the palate, peaches and nectarines along with a little grapefruit interweave almond biscuit, vanilla cream. An elegant, fine-textured phenolic line added to the mouthfeel, linger with nutty nuances to a sustained, satisfying finish. Match with baked chicken pie and quiche lorraine over the next 3 years" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Jan 2021

Their Chardonnay has a classic golden shimmer and aromas of juicy nectarine and honeydew melon. Rich and luscious in flavour with a subtle oak influence, each sip is fresh and delicately balanced.

Grapes were grown in the Southern Valleys, a premium Chardonnay subregion. After pressing juice was sent to barrel and tank for fermentation, with selected yeast strains, 35% of the blend was fermented in aged French oak. A portion of the ferment completed malolactic fermentation, to add texture and subtle creaminess.

1 x Summerhouse Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2020

Awarded 91/100 Points & 4.5 Stars: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

Awarded Silver Medal: New Zealand International Wine Show

Awarded Silver Medal: New World Wine Awards 2020

"This is gorgeously elegant and bright, showing apricot, watermelon, lemon peel and floral notes on the nose, leading to a delicately expressed palate that delivers juicy fruit flavours and smooth texture, finishing long and refreshing. Enticing and most pleasing" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

Popping with a gorgeous pink hue and aromas of luscious watermelon and raspberry, each glass is brimming with flavours of fresh red berries and delicious stone fruits.

The 2020 vintage will be remembered for many reasons. The driest summer on record allowed for perfect ripening conditions. Late summer brought Marlborough’s trademark cooler nights that are so important for aromatics and retention of acidity. 2020 would’ve been a stress-free harvest, if it wasn’t for COVID-19! The introduction of a nationwide lockdown to slow the spread of the virus coincided with the beginning of our harvest. Their vineyard and winery teams moved incredibly fast to adhere to very strict distancing and hygiene protocols to allow them to continue to operate. Despite the challenges, they're delighted with the quality and flavour concentration in the 2020 wines.

"Sweetly fruited and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, cherry, roasted nut and subtle mushroom aromas, followed by a succulent palate that's plump and lingering. It's harmonious and soothing with a lengthy supple finish, making it seductively appealing. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

"Vibrant, youthful, immediately varietal and fruit centric bouquet - aromas of  dried raspberry and dark cherry, a light dried herb note and toasty baking spices of oak. Complexity increases as the wines opens up in the glass. On the palate - tense, youthful, fruity, fresh and tasty. Flavours mirror the nose with moderate to firm tannins and acidity for contrast. Well made, balanced, even and ready to enjoy from today and through 2025" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, World of Wines, Nov 2020

"Bright, deep ruby-red with a slight purple hue, lighter on edge. The nose is bright with vibrant nuances of raspberries, cherries and rhubarb fruit, underlying spices and alcohol power. Medium-light bodied, raspberries, cherries and rhubarb lead the tension, along with subtle spices and phenolic texture lingers to a juicy finish. The wine is straightforward with juicy, vibrant fruit; enlivened by fresh acidity. Light powdery tannin mouthfeel provides some grip and texture. This is an easy-drinking Pinot Noir featuring raspberries, cherries and rhubarb fruit with tension and spices on a powdery tannin texture line. Match with roasted pork belly and slow-cooked lamb over the next 2 years" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Oct 2020

Alive with aromas of dark cherry and vanilla bean and bursting with delicious ripe cherry and spice flavours, this Central Otago Pinot Noir is rich and velvet-soft.
