Wine - main divide waipara

By: EuroVintage  06-Dec-2011

Main Divide's aim is to produce wines that reflect the unspoilt freshness, purity and cool climate of selected wine growing regions of the South Island.

Main Divide is the local name for the mighty range of Southern Alps that form the backbone of the Te Wai Pounamu - the South Island of New Zealand. Its name and logo reflect the location and uniqueness of the label's regionally distinct wines.

A handful of selected South Island vineyards have been chosen to produce this range of wines because of their unique terroir and the quality of their grapes. Main Divide work with the growers of these vineyards to obtain quality fruit which is then hand crafted into wine by the Donaldson Family at their Waipara winery.

Main Divide's philosophy is based on individuality and harmony. The Donaldson's produce distinctive, vibrant wines with lively fruit flavours, which at the same time are integrated and harmonious. Subtle intertwining of complimentary aromas and flavours provides an extra dimension of complexity.
