Overview

The long cool maritime influenced growing season of the Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay districts, where Lindauer fruit is sourced, is capable of maturing grapes well past the point at which they are suitable for sparkling wines.

The timing of harvest is therefore very important and closely monitored. The early season harvest of sparkling grapes ensures that they experience a season which very closely mimics that of more classically defined cool climate regions. The advantage of this early harvest is surety of ripeness and balance, but with natural acidity the envy of many wine growing regions of the world. The harvest is timed so the fruit flavours and aromas are still in the yellow citrus to green apple fruit spectrum for Chardonnay and fresh red strawberry spectrum for Pinot Noir.

Winery Profile

Upon its launch in 1981, Lindauer became the first commercially available méthode traditionnelle in New Zealand. In the quarter century since then, Lindauer has become the country’s most popular single wine brand. Lindauer is made from traditional champagne grape varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and uses the authentic method of bottling the wine for its second fermentation, a technique that creates the sparkle and distinctive yeasty flavours.
