Winemaker Notes

Bright, intense cherry red. The nose is lifted and vibrant, showing cherry notes. On the palate, this wine is supple, focused and silky, offering lively fruit and a lingering finish.

Perfect with Angry Duck from the Bamboo! Or a contrasting dish of smoked eel and buerre blanc covered new potatoes

James Suckling
Very neat, tidy and seamless with a supple, smooth and fleshy texture. Plenty of red cherries and hints of Campari-like flavors. Chalky notes to boot. Porcelain-like tannins. Drink now to 2020+.

Zephyr, New Zealand
Zephyr Winemaker Ben Glover Winery Image

The Zephyr Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are both single vineyards that are certified sustainably farmed (currently in organic transition).  

The name Zephyr characterizes the prevailing wind that complements Marlborough’s unique ripening season. Zephyr wines embrace the dynamic spirit of the Glover family and the lively aromatics of the estate vineyards. The Glover family vineyards, planted in 1985 alongside the meandering Opawa River, have inspired the family’s passion for wine.

In 1985, inspired by the pioneering efforts of other Marlborough mavericks, the Glover family converted their Dairy farm in Dillons Point to vine. Being a third generation farming family meant that there was a natural ability to see the potential in the land for vineyards and ultimately the production of world class wine. The family was well aboard what has been described the greatest wine experiment ever.

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.
