Tasting Notes

Colour Deep Red
Nose Intense spicy oak with chocolate, vanilla and biscuit, a whiff of mint over top of a core of dark fruit, camphor, mulberry and plum.
Palate Super luxurious and velvety, this must be aged in American Oak given the coconut and vanilla essence notes that stud the opulent palate.
Food Pairing Beef and Venison
Cellaring 5-10 Years

Te Rere
Te Rere Estate is a boutique, family owned, vineyard on Church Bay, Waiheke Island. The realisation of a dream for owner David Parkinson- its sole purpose is producing small volumes of ultra-premium wines through sustainable viticulture and winemaking. French winemaker and viticulturist, Luc Desbonnets, applies a very much hands-off approach in the winery. Relying on meticulous work in the vineyard and super low crops to create immaculate fruit. Allowing nature to take its course in the winery produces beautiful low intervention wines.

Te Rere makes a range of different varietals. A well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc with some extended lees stirring to add texture, a dry Pinot Gris, superb Chardonnay a juicy Syrah and Reserve Syrah. Most of these wines have received accolades, with the chardonnay and reserve Syrah receiving 4.5 and 5 stars with Michael Cooper, Wine Critic. Te Rere wines are delicious drinking and hugely popular all round!
