From France’s Rhone Valley come two varieties that were made for each other. Both varieties thrive in the sun-drenched winelands of Gisborne, renown for producing soft, yet intense aromatic wines. The richness, structure and spice of Marsanne compliment the stonefruit intensity and roundness of Viognier, creating a crisp, full-bodied wine that is packed with apricots, white flowers and traces of hazelnut. With a portion matured in aged in French oak barriques, this wine delivers flavour, structure and texture, but with enough restraint that it is great with food.

5 Stars & 93 Points Sam Kim, Wine Orbit - " Inspired by gorgeously rich wines of the Rhone Valley, this splendid rendition shows apricot, baked pear, beeswax and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is expansive and richly textured. The wine offers terrific fruit power, wonderfully supported by velvety mouthfeel and refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2022."

Meet the maker

 

The Hunting Lodge produce beautiful wines from sites across NZ, particularly West Auckland, Marlborough and Central Otago. Their West Auckland spot charmingly tells their story with vines lining the drive as you come in, a lush vege garden off to one side and then a community of buildings surrounding each other.

One of the buildings that stands out is their restaurant and it's a longstanding symbol of the quality that The Hunting Lodge produce in regards to both their wine and food. It's a beautiful Villa with character and charm yet simplicity and approachability. 

A term you'll hear a lot around The Hunting Lodge is 'pasture-to-plate philosophy' and this involves the team growing as much produce as they can on site to supply their restaurant and sourcing whatever else they need locally.

This ethos carries through to their wines as they have a strong sense of terroir and place due to minimal interventionist winemaking techniques. Personality and uniqueness is therefore in abundance, and this is only emphasised by some of the unique varietals The Hunting Lodge use to produce wines. Lagrein anyone?! 

Pete, the winemaker, answered a few of our questions about the 2019 vintage, his favourite grape and more, so if you want to keep ready click here!
