Wines - Premium, boutique, estate grown

main_wine

 

Waipara River Estate specialises in producing a select range of premium, boutique, artisan wines using grapes from our own estate vines as Single Vineyard Releases (SVR). We obtain Merlot for our Cabernet Merlot from the neighbouring Mackenzie Vineyard. Pinot Gris is from vineyards on the south bank of the Waipara River.

We are fortunate in being able to cellar our wines and to release  them only when they are suitably matured.

We use selected Waipara winemakers, including Kym Rayner and Theo Coles. At harvest time, to ensure premium quality wines, viticulturist Gwyn Williams liaise closely with winemakers to ensure our grapes are picked at their optimum for sugar levels (brix).

Since the 2014 vintage all our grapes are machine harvested. Riesling and Gewürztraminer are immediately crushed and fermented as juice in stainless steel tanks. Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are juiced with skins on and fermented in French oak barriques (approx. 2-5 years old) for approx.12-14 months.

We do NOT use egg, milk or fish fining products. Some gelatin is used only on white wine juice pre-fermentation. The whole winemaking operation – from crush to bottling and storage – is only a short distance away from the vineyard.
