Winery Tasting Notes

Distant Land Reserve Chardonnay 2007 (6 x 750mL), Hawkes Bay, NZ. Screwcap Closure. The Hawkes bay reserve Chardonnay 2007 was crafted using selected Mendoza grapes hand harvested from the free draining river-bed gravels of Hawkes Bay, Dartmoor valley. Elegant, tasty oak with butterscotch integrates hints of almonds and citrus aromas, leading into a smooth refined palate with a creamy lees texture.

Distant Land `Reserve` Pinot Gris 2008 (6 x 750mL), Hawkes Bay, NZ. Screwcap closure. The Pinot Gris grapes come from a single vineyard in the Dartmoor Valley. The soil at the vineyard site is a mixture of free-draining gravels from the old riverbed, and calcareous soils from the surrounding limestone hills and river terraces. The grapes were harvested at peak maturity in April. The fruit coming into the winery was clean and ripe, and most importantly, had excellent concentration of aromatics and flavours. 16% was aged in old French oak barrels for 5 months to add complexity and palate weight. The resultant wine is a stunning example of New Zealand Pinot Gris. The nose displays tropical nuances of pear with hints of citrus and banana. The palate is deliciously sweet nectarine that runs into subtle citrus and pear. Well rounded and elegant, a wine to complement a wide variety of dishes.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Peter Fredatovich set sail from his homeland in Croatia on the shores of the Adriatic to discover a new and prosperous life in a distant land.

In New Zealand he found a land rich with promise and vast opportunities.Arriving in Auckland in 1922 with few possessions, Petar worked in the Kauri tree gum fields and as a stone mason to save for a deposit on a block of land west of the city at the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges. Petar cleared his land by hand and planted vines. Barrels were hand-made from local native Totara trees to ferment his wine.

In 1937 he established his winery.The winery was eventually passed to his son, Peter D Fredatovich, who planted more vineyards and expanded the winery. Peter's efforts saw him awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire) in 1989 for services to New Zealand wine. Peter D Fredatovich is recognised as one of the pioneers of the modern New Zealand wine industry.

In 1988 current Managing Director Peter M Fredatovich took over the management of the business from his father.

Distant land Vintners is proud to remain family owned and operated by the third and fourth generation Peter Fredatovich 70 years after the establishment of their winery.
