Winemaker Notes

A lustrous color of dark garnet red. The complex aromas draw you in with dark red fruits, a mosaic of savory notes and hints of roasted meats mingling with black cherry. The palate is richly layered with ripe red berries, thyme and further savory interest. This is a supple, fleshy wine with a lingering taste of chocolate and raspberries.

Wine Spectator
Strong black tea flavors from the core, supported by firm tannins. A whiff of orange zest, spiced plum, cardamom and date bread offer rich accents that crescendo on the finish. Drink now through 2027.

Sacred Hill, New Zealand
Sacred Hill Winery Image
Imported from New Zealand. Sacred Hill is located in Hawkes Bay, one of the most important quality growing regions in the country. Wine critic Hugh Johnson writes the conditions for viticulture in the Hawkes Bay "could hardly be better." Estate vineyards and selected growers supply ripe grapes that are carefully handled to capture freshness and retain true varietal character.

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
