Our respect for the land begins with respect for its history. Overlooking the vineyard are the Aorangi Ranges, the very hills made famous by Kupe the great Polynesian voyager who discovered New Zealand, according to Maori legend. Kupe left his three canoes, Nga Waka, on top of the range, giving rise to the now familiar landmark of the district, the “Nga Waka-o-Kupe” or three flat-topped hills on top of the range, which resemble upturned canoes.

Wine Advocate: 95 pts

This wine was given every priority during its elevation and now shows all the hallmarks of a grand young wine. It is at the vanguard of Pinot Noir style in the New World: a true reflection of both Martinborough’s unique terroir and the skills and experience of winemakers Larry McKenna and Tim Bourne.
