Expert Reviews

“Marlborough’s version of this Austrian grape comes from the largest viticultural estate in the country. Stone fruit, honeysuckle, a touch of white pepper and a fresh, dry finish. Pure delight.”Steven Spurrier, Decanter 1 June 2012

"Vanilla and lemon curd on the nose mix with lovely passion fruit flavours, this is crisp and cool, bright, fresh and long,' said team leader Angela Reddin, while Mark Dearmer of The Marylebone Hotel noted 'honeyed pears with hints of citrus. Ginger spices warm the lengthy finish. Food friendly."Sommelier Wine Awards 2013 BRONZE 15 May 2013

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Yealands Estate is based in the Awatere Valley to the south east of Marlborough's Wairau Plains. Their vineyard stretches from the foothills of the Seaward Kaikoura ranges to the bluffs overlooking Cook Strait on the east coast of Marlborough.

Back when Marlborough's wine industry started to gather momentum in the Awatere everyone thought the steep contours of these foothills were too challenging for viticulture. Everyone that is except Peter Yealand. He recognised that with careful development and clever thinking this terroir would produce great wine. In 2002 he began consolidating his vineyards here, extending his existing interests on the Wairau Plains with the development of some 950 hectares of rolling Awatere country which he terraced into vineyard blocks to create New Zealand's single largest privately-owned vineyard.
