Winemaker Notes

Matariki is a family-owned Hawkes Bay winery born from a passionate belief of John and Rosemary O'Connor that great wines are made in the vineyard. In 1981 they instinctively recognized the potential of Gimblett Road in Hawkes Bay as a unique and exceptional wine-producing area. The area has been referred to by Daniel Roberts, Director of Research for Kendall-Jackson as "capable of producing red wines equal to the world's best."

Deep and intense ruby / garnet in color. The nose is a complex mix of plum, blackberry, clove and cinnamon. Fruit driven, but subtle integrated smoke and tar nuances from aging in French oak barriques. On the palate this wine is complex game / peppery flavours. Big structure displaying refined and integrated tannins and cedar oak, which lingers on the finish.

"Shows the characteristic herbal and peppery notes of Rhône-style Syrah, accenting crisp blackberry fruit. Complex on the palate, wrapping the herbs and peppers tightly around rich fruit to the point that they're really inseparable."- Wine Enthusiast

Languedoc-Roussillon

View all wine

An extensive appellation producing a diverse selection of good-quality, value-priced wines, Languedoc-Roussillon is the world’s largest wine-producing region, spanning the Mediterranean coast from the Spanish border to Provence. Languedoc forms the eastern half of the larger appellation, while Roussillon is in the west; the two actually have quite distinct personalities but are typically grouped together. Languedoc’s terrain is generally flat coastal plains, with a warm Mediterranean climate and a frequent risk of drought. Roussillon, on the other hand, is defined by the rugged Pyrenees mountains and near-constant sunshine.

Virtually every style of wine is made in this expansive region. Dry wines are often blends, and varietal choice is strongly influenced by the neighboring Rhône valley. For reds and rosés, the primary grapes include Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre. White varieties include Grenache Blanc, Muscat, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino, Maccabéo, Clairette, Picpoul, and Bourbelenc. International varieties are also planted in large numbers here, in particular Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. In Roussillon, excellent sweet wines are made from Muscat and Grenache in Rivesaltes, Banyuls, and Maury. The key region for sparkling wines here is Limoux, where Blanquette de Limoux is believed to have been the first sparkling wine made in France, even before Champagne. Crémant de Limoux is produced in a more modern style.
