NEWS & EVENTS: September, 2015

Our Estate Sauvingnon Blanc picks up Gold and a Top 50 spot!

We are very happy to announce that we have been named in the New World Wine Awards Top 50 wines!

Our Matahiwi Estate 2014 Sauvignon Blanc was the only one outside of the Marlborough/Nelson region. Great recognition we are happy to bask in! As New World said “Very pretty floral and pineapple aromas, the taste is ripe, textural and juicy. A food friendly wine from just north of Wellington and a brilliant accompaniment to watching a rerun of James Bond movies!”

We are often asked how to pronounce Matahiwi. The correct pronunciation is Ma-ta-hi-wi. Click on the link below to hear it!

The meaning of Matahiwi is raised ridge. Mata meaning raised/headland and hiwi meaning ridge. When you come to the winery you will see the raise up on to Paierua Road where the vineyard and winery are located.
