Maori Point

A great wine is the expression of its terroir: the place, the soils and the people. This land and our careful farming of it may explain why our wines show particular intensity, combining lifted fruit and non-fruit flavours with sumptuous textures. We allow the native wild yeasts from our vineyard to perform our Pinot Noir fermentations, and we do not fine or filter our Pinot Noir. Our winemaking is the artisanal ideal: our winery is right next to our vines, and we hand craft our wines with minimal intervention, but maximal care. We smell and taste and ponder every fermentation and every single barrel of our wine, from start to finish. We have learned to read our wines, to understand their past and dream about what they will become. But these words can only take you so far. To truly understand, come visit us and taste our wines.
