Te Wahi means ‘the place’ in te reo Māori, reflecting both the importance of terroir and the sense of finding our second home. It is a powerful wine with an opulent core of dark berry fruit and structured tannins. Over time, warm spices and notes of forest floor flourish and provide complexity.

Te Wahi 2017 taste description

The 2017 Te Wahi Pinot Noir is dark and intense. The nose is dusky brambles, wild strawberries and hints of violets. The palate is elegant, with damson and hedgerow fruit underpinned by dense tannins and vibrant freshness. This is a sophisticated Pinot Noir, with balance, clarity and a long, focused finish.

Te Wahi 2017 Flavour matching

Enjoy with

Te Wahi’s complex, sophisticated and powerful flavours make it a perfect match for game meats and roasted vegetables. It’s a perfect addition to any winter banquet - try it with slow-roasted lamb shoulder and grilled root vegetables, or beef wellington and parsnip purée.

Te Wahi 2017 Winemaking

How it's made

Fruit from our two complementary Central Otago vineyards is mostly de-stemmed into open-top fermentation tanks, with some whole bunch fermentation. In spring, the wine goes through extended maceration and spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The wine then spends a year or more ageing in French oak barrels before bottling.

Vineyards and terroir

Te Wahi comes from two contrasting vineyards. Northburn sits on Lake Dunstan’s steep east bank, where unforgiving, rocky, glacial soils produce fruit with structure and intensity. Calvert, on Felton Road in Bannockburn, sits in the silty, loamy soils of an ancient lake bed and produces opulent, fragrant fruit.

Vineyards and terroir
“In the winery, we simply look for ways to frame the fruit, but not mask it. We know that our Calvert and Northburn vineyards produce very different styles, and blending is a huge part of what we do; we want to bring out the best in both. Calvert produces beautiful, sleek Pinot Noir, whereas Northburn is beautifully structured and architectural.”

Jim White, 2019
