A very enjoyable wine for passing the time away. This dry Pinot Gris is full of fruit and matches well with asian style dishes and light tapa meals.

2009 CHB Chardonnay

This unique Chardonnay is a result of a long Hawke’s Bay drought. It’s intense citrus and stonefruit flavours with hints of cream and flint. Cold tank fermented with 6 months lees stirring has left an intense wine with a soft finish, which will develop well over the next 5 years. Best enjoyed with food and friends.

This stunning Central Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir is a rich, full bodied wine with intense flavours of red berry, dark plum and earthy notes. The well integrated spice and oak gives the wine great complexity with long smooth tannins which will make every glass enjoyable.

2009 Late Charge

Another Central Hawke’s Bay drought allowed the Sauvignon Blanc grapes to nurture on the vine until the berries began to shrivel to shape a late harvest wine. Sip cold with cheeses or dessert to complete your meal. Sweet but not too sweet.

Victory NV Methode Traditionelle

The Victory NV Methode Traditionelle is an exciting bubbly made in the traditional way, bottle fermented with a blend of 50 % Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. This crisp, clean complex wine displays hints of yeast on the finish, and is ready to be popped at any celebratory moment.

Did you know…
Junction Vineyard lies upon a fault line and it has been noted that vineyards residing upon a fault produce unique wines due to the altered soil chemistry created through upwelling of deeply sourced groundwater along the fault which can distinctly flavour grapes.
