MAKING A MARK

Proud as punch to release our second-ever Trademark Syrah, the 2013, and to introduce for the first time its flashier, golden cousin the Trademark Chardonnay 2015.  Only made in the perfect storm and rather limited stocks, releasing these wines is a big deal for us.  It's some of our best work so far and the really exciting thing is we've only just started!  And here's a little review from the lovely Raymond Chan, just to get you started.

 

NEW ZEALAND BUSINESS MAG AND ME

A little bit of blurb appeared recently on www.nzbusiness.co.nz  Tried to put my best foot forward!

 

"A" FOR AWESOME FIVE-STAR CHARDY

It's no secret that around here we love a good chardy, so when one of ours does well, it makes us pretty chuffed. Our soon-to-be-released Quarter Acre 2015 Chardonnay has had wonderful 5 Star reviews from Sam Kim and Raymond Chan.  Read what they say right here, including "This is awesome" from Sam Kim. (note that this wine isn't released yet, we're still on the 2014, but not long now!)

 

TRADEMARK SYRAH 2011 ALL GONE

All our stocks are gone, gone, gone.  Keep an eye out at fab wine shops near you if you'd like to snaffle a bottle before it really disappears.  Love you long time Trademark Syrah 2011...

 

GOURMET TRAVELLER WINE NOTES US AS A 'RISING STAR'

Humbled and honoured to be named on a list of one of nine New Zealand "rising stars" by the esteemed Bob Campbell in Gourmet Traveller Wine.  Bob notes our Quarter Acre 2013 Syrah as a signature wine.  This mag's all class and credit, so we're stoked to be named and photographed among its pages.

 

BOB DIGS OUR VIOGNIER

Yes, the wonderful Bob Campbell has spoke rather nicely about our Quarter Acre 2014 Viognier, in fact giving it 4.5 stars and an "impressively powerful" tag. Check out his full review here under the title "New Zealand's Best 2014 Viognier" (just saying).  We love Viognier, take a punt if you haven't stepped over to the the dark side yet...it's well worth seeking some out.

 

THE GUARDIAN LIKES OUR CHARDY

You read it right.  Fiona Beckett, wine and food writer for The Guardian UK, mentioned our One Off 2014 Chardonnay in a recent article saying it was "gorgeously creamy", making her ponder why she didn't drink chardy more often?!  Well we have to agree on that one.  Check it out here.

 

WHAT MR COOPER SAYS

Well-known wine writer Michael Cooper has recently had a bit of a review-fest on our wines and this is what he came up with:

4 Stars Te Awanga Estate 2014 Chardonnay 
4 1/2 Stars Quarter Acre 2014 Viognier
4 Stars Quarter Acre 2013 Rosé
4 Stars Quarter Acre 2013 Merlot Malbec
4 Stars Te Awanga Estate 2013 Merlot Franc
5 Stars Quarter Acre 2013 Syrah BOOYAHH!
4 1/2 Stars Te Awanga Estate 2013 Syrah

That'll do!  Check it out at www.michaelcooper.co.nz

 

OUR QA SYRAH'S A LITTLE STAR!

Not only did our Quarter Acre 2013 Syrah get a Gold from Decanter (see below), but it's now come 3rd (behind two Villa Maria wines) in a Syrah line up at Cuisine Magazine.  As we're just a tad Syrah-centric around here - that's all good as far as we're concerned!

 

HOLD THE PHONE...GOLD IN THE DECANTER WORLD WINE AWARDS!

Yep you heard right, we got a Gold for our Quarter Acre 2013 Syrah. We're particularly proud of that. Keeping our Quarter Acre Syrah company was a Silver for our Quarter Acre 2013 Chardy, and a Bronze for our Te Awanga Estate 2013 Syrah. Not a bad haul, huh?!

 

MORE GOOD NEWS...

Raymond Chan has given 5 booming stars to our recently released One Off 2013 Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese (Super Hawke's Bay for short), there's very limited stocks of this beauty so rip into this damn fine fire-side red.

 

5 STAR ONE OFF 2014 CHARDY...SOLD OUT

Ok, so that was quick.  We were to tell you about our lovely Old School One Off 2014 Chardy and how it was now up for the taking, but it ran out the door faster than my boy when he hears the cry "dishes time"!  While that's good for us, really good for us, if you're on the hunt for some you might just find it at other places around the traps, try our good friends at  Advintage.

 

5 STAR MERLOT MALBEC AND SYRAHS

Sam Kim from Wine Orbit recently gave three of our new-release wines 5 stars each.  Now that's what you'd consider a really good haul - all reds, all 2013 and all hunky dory according to Sam.  Get the full review at this very spot, but to very briefly sum up this is what he said about each wine;  Quarter Acre Merlot Malbec 2013 - "This is Awesome."  Te Awanga Estate Syrah 2013 - "A lovely expression of the variety."  Quarter Acre Syrah 2013 - "The wine shows beautiful harmony and integration." Get amongst it!

 

QUARTER ACRE 2013 CHARDONNAY HITS THE SWEET SPOT

Our Quarter Acre Chard has been punching above its weight of late - it was awarded Pure Gold at the recent Air New Zealand Wine Awards and Michael Cooper has just given it 5 Stars in his 2015 edition of the Michael Copper's Buyers Guide.  In fact, this is what he said: "... a classic regional style. A single-vineyard wine, hand-picked and barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts, it has a complex bouquet, leading into a weighty palate with rich, ripe stone-fruit flavours, concentrated, complex and long. Best drinking 2016+"  Go Hawke's Bay Chard!

 

RELEASE OF THE BIG GUN - TRADEMARK SYRAH 2011

Here's an introduction we've been itching to make for quite some time now.  It's a wine we've been maturing and refining and it may be no surprise to you that it's a Syrah (see arty shot on the right!) It was always the idea that one day we'd make and launch a Syrah into the big wide world that was what we thought was a sterling example of a Syrah grown and made well in Hawke's Bay. A single vineyard, one brand, best we can make, only in a good harvest kinda gig.  So in 2010 we let loose the No.8 2007 Syrah, it's long since sold out and we've now gone through a name change, but we're back where we need to be with the re-launch of this wine.  Raymond Chan's liking it giving it a bloody grand 19.5/20, and in the New Zealand Herald, Mr Hawkesby said it's "...a seamless head-turner of a wine....Rich colour with robust flavours, finishing with a velvet smoothness and flavours of mint along with white pepper and red fruits." I'll drink to that.  Phew.

 

JONH HAWKESBY TALKS ONE OFF

The launch of our latest One Offs - the 2014 Albarino and Sangiovese Rose - has brought on a couple of kind words from Mr Hawkesby on Newstalk ZB.  Check it out right here.  Both wines are loaded into our Buy Wines section too should you require some summer drinking, or visit Imo out at the Cellar Door Te Awanga way.

 

STOKED ALERT - WINESTATE GIVES OUR QUARTER ACRE 2013 CHARDY 5 STARS

They sure did - we just heard!  Hot off the press they said - "...it has a complex bouquet, leading into a weighty palate with rich, ripe stonefruit flavours, concentrated, complex and long."  Sold!

 

HUON HOOKE GIVES A BIG NOD  TO OUR TE AWANGA ESTATE 2011 SYRAH

Wine writer for the Sydney Morning Herald and Gourmet Traveller Wine (Hello! Gonna say that again - Sydney Morning Herald and Gourmet Traveller Wine baby...!), Huon Hooke, has awarded the Te Awanga Estate 2011 Syrah Gold Ribbon Wine status (94+ points) with 95 points on his website www.huonhooke.com  Ok, so those Aussies did just help nip away with the America's Cup, but it seems they do know a good wine when they taste one too!

 

JOHN SAKER COMPARES ROD TO F SCOTT FITZGERALD

Seriously cool piece by Mr JohnSaker in the Sunday Star Times recently.  Check it out here.  Paraphrasing of course, but basically he says the Vidal Estate 1998 Joseph Soler Syrah was Rod's 'Gatsby' wine, "...a work of polished brilliance...".  He  does continue on to say that Rod has managed better that Fitzgerald with his follow ups (phew!), one of them being the Quarter Acre 2011 Chardonnay - "...a taut flint-meets-stonefruit, complex chardy..."

 

BEER ANYONE?

We are happy to announce we're partnering up with Renaissance Brewing to spread the word about their great beers. Jase the Ace will now be on the road representing Renaissance beers in Hawke's Bay, along with our wines of course. STOKED!  Because the world cannot turn on wine alone....!

Trademark

TRADEMARK STORY

TRADEMARK STORY

I hand-on-heart believe that Chardonnay and Syrah grown within our region will become the most important red and white varieties raised in Hawke's Bay.  They’ll become our trademarks.

With Trademark, we're putting our Chardonnay and Syrah out there, releasing it to the world, poking a stick in the ground and saying that this is the best we can create at that particular time, in this particular place.  It's a life's work.

Only made in a good vintage, with fairly small print runs.  They're drinkers and keepers.  Made from 100% Hawke's Bay gold.

 

Quarter Acre

QUARTER ACRE STORY

QUARTER ACRE STORY

A collection of single vineyard wines that represent the ground and place they came from while at the same time tell a story about making wine in Hawke's Bay.

Since 2006, we’ve been searching out Hawke’s Bay’s best vineyards and using a light touch to make wines that truly represent the ground and place they come from. We want to make wines with great individual character; wines that we love to drink.  Like the vines we work with, Quarter Acre is an idea firmly planted in New Zealand.

Here's a bit more about where we grow our Quarter Acre grapes

 

 

 

Te Awanga Estate

TE AWANGA ESTATE STORY

TE AWANGA ESTATE STORY

Te Awanga is a special piece of dirt.  Planted 25 years ago by a group of friends in one of Hawke's Bay's oldest wine growing areas.  They dreamt of making the region's greatest wines.  We're still working on it but believe our vineyard by the coast truly captures something unique.

Te Awanga Estate is a range of single estate wines that are rich, mouthfilling and long-lived.

Here's a bit more about where we grow our Te Awanga Estate grapes

Check out our Cellar Door at Te Awanga Estate.

Two Gates

TWO GATES STORY

TWO GATES STORY

Planted on old river terraces at Maraekakaho, our Two Gates vineyard is the perfect place to earn our organic grape growing stripes.

Two Gates wines will tell the tale of where they're from, so where they're from needs to be clean, pure and healthy. Just like having your own veggie garden - homegrown is best, no chemicals, interfere only when needed and use nothing that would make you hesitate to pick and eat right thereand then.  Exciting territory.

Here's a bit more about where we grow our Two Gates grapes

One Off

ONE OFF STORY

ONE OFF STORY

Here's a few wines that don't quite fit with the others in the 'hood. This time it's a great Martinborough Pinot Noir we've been caring for since 2012, but next time it could be some pre-Christmas bubbles we've been mucking around with, or even a bizarre grape varietal from Botswana - that's One Off.

The idea behind it is that we can make, blend and bottle it with a healthy disregard for brand families, consumer research and marketing fundamentals.  And it's fun.  The only catch is that it's a one off...when it's gone, it's gone. There'll never be another!

The Bottle Brothers.

THE BOTTLE BROTHERS

THE BOTTLE BROTHERS

Mike and I'd been working together on the odd project for a couple of years, getting a look at each other through easy times and tougher ones too. We eventually came together over some well-trod common ground – the love of wine (and a late night whiskey or two).

A few weeks before Christmas in 2012 we shook on it, nine months later the deal was done. Brothers from different mothers for sure, but brothers nonetheless. Bottle Brothers in fact – sometimes a role model, sometimes an ass. Sometimes a friend, sometimes the voice of reason.

To achieve what we want to, we need to control and own vineyards, a winery and distribution channels - too much for one man, and a lot more fun with two.

 

Our Vineyards.

THE 2014 VINTAGE

We've had some sensational Sauvvie and Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Viognier. Why sensational? Because we had a moderate Winter and only got out of bed twice to fight frosts, followed by an early Spring and warm, but not scorching hot, Summer. In short, as far as the grapes are concerned, it meant low disease pressure (good condition), not too hot (high acids and moderate brix/sugars) with plenty of sunshine (ideal conditions for flavour development). 

The reds are all strong contenders too with Merlot and Syrah being a highlight.  We've stretched ourselves this year and picked more Syrah than ever before from a number of sites around Hawke's Bay. It's all part of our cunning master plan to learn as much as we can, in as short a time as possible, about what Syrah tastes like when it's grown in different parts of Hawke's Bay. So here's the skinny from me....2014 will be every bit as good as 2013, which was as good as we've had.

THE GRAPE KEEPER

Brent Stone may just be the ultimate man of the Hawke’s Bay land.  Although he wasn’t born in the region, he moved here with his family at the age of five and the rivers and soils of the area pretty much run through his veins.  He can’t imagine living anywhere else.

A childhood filled with long hot summers playing and swimming in the rivers that flow down from the Ruahine Ranges kicked off a love for the outdoors.

His early working life saw him always outdoors, on farms and orchards, apart from one season in the freezing works, a bit of a right of passage for a chap in Hawke’s Bay.  And then the vines called – that and the fact that, as he puts it, he was over apples and liked the idea of not having to climb ladders. Tractors with cabs also looked rather appealing.
