There is a windswept elegance to Marlborough’s famed Wairau Valley. It is both the heart of the district and home to some of the country’s most famous wines. The region takes its name from the Wairau River, which flows from the alpine ranges in the west to the ocean at Cloudy Bay. Wines from the Wairau Valley are rich, elegant, generous and concentrated. Goldwater’s wines are considered by many aficionados to be among the finest of the appellation.

Winery Tasting Notes
The fruit is gently harvested during the cool morning hours to retain the bright, pristine, characteristics of the grapes. After arrival at the winery, the primary task is to preserve and enhance the extraordinary flavors and textures in the fruit.
Our Pinot Gris shows the influence of our unique climate and complex soils. After harvesting, the fruit is gently pressed and the juice cold settled before transferring to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation.The aromas and flavours are packed with pear, spice, and a luscious minerality.
