Wine list

Urlar Sauvignon Blanc

2018

The 2018 season has delivered a wine that has plenty of fresh gooseberry and citrus aromas of ripe lemon. Notes of honeydew melon and stone fruit give a riper expression of this variety.This wine consistently shows a salty/mineral texture. It is great on its own as an aperitif and can match with a wide range of foods. We love it with fresh kaimoana(seafood).

Urlar Pinot Gris

2018

Aromas of stone fruit and spice (nutmeg), ginger and honey with sweet pear dominate the nose.The wine has a honeyed and mouth filling entry from the malolactic influence. Satisfying richness is then reined in by a tangelo skin and ginger spiced texture from the skin contact parcel. It finishes dry and refreshing. Will cellar for several years, enjoy with rich food.

Urlar Pinot Noir

2017

The classic 2017 vintage delivers an elegant wine of dark red berry fruits, dried herbs and spicy savoury notes. There are complex layers of spice, earthy cedar and forest floor. Elegantly concentrated with fine tannins and a silky texture and a lingering intensity of dark chocolate. Beautifully suited to a rack of lamb or game dishes such as venison or duck.

Vineyard

Our wine collection reflects the nature of our environment and includes harmonious aromatics; Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris and strapping, vibrant Pinot Noir.

Our 31-hectare single vineyard is located on ancient free-draining soils and our inter-row crop rotation maintains healthy soils full of life and biodiversity. Our seven year crop rotation maintains healthy soils and vines. Every seven years, one row in seven will be planted in a variety of plants and wild flowers. These flowers, such as buckwheat, lupins, stinging nettles, dandelions and yarrow provide crucial protection to the vineyard as they attract beneficial insects that will kill off unwanted pests and predators that can destroy the vines, leaves or roots.
