About Quartz Reef

Quartz Reef vineyard

Named after New Zealand's largest quartz deposit that lies beneath the vineyards at Bendigo Station, Quartz Reef has become the vessel for what winemaker Rudi Bauer calls - his search to make wines which exhibit "a symphony of flavours" that "capture attention and entertain so that you forget everything else". There are currently 30 hectares under cultivation. The key to this distinction lies in the maturing sun drenched slopes situated at Quartz Reef's Bendigo Estate vineyard. The vineyard is certified biodynamic and thus fits under the current movement of "natural wines".
