From a stellar vintage in Marlborough for Pinot Noir. What an effort! All fruit for this wine was hand-picked, hand-sorted then destemmed and grape (!!!) sorted as to ensure that only pristine, perfect Pinot grapes make it into the fermenters. A silky, subtle, earthy Pinot Noir, that is simply delicious.

About Te Whare Ra

Te Whare Ra (TWR), the "house in the sun", is the oldest boutique winery in Marborough. Established 1979 in Renwick, it has the oldest Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer vines in Marlborough.

In 2003, Te Whare Ra was purchased by the husband and wife winemaker team Anna and Jason Flowerday. Anna is a 6th generation winegrower from McLaren Vale in Australia and Jason is a 3rd generation kiwi winegrower with both parents and grandparents in the NZ wine industry.

Vineyard and winemaking at Te Whare Ra

The 11ha vineyard has predominantly loam over clay soils.

Everything is hand-picked, hand-sorted and the attention to detail is meticulous.

TWR's aim is to grow great quality fruit which is balanced in all its components, and which requires minimal winemaking intervention once they get it in the winery. This means a cropping level which is strictly controlled. Anna and Jason do selective crop thinning at several key times during the growing season across all varieties, as well as very detailed canopy management.
There also is a big focus on soil health in the management of their vineyard. This is achieved through old school farming, composting, biodynamic preparations, selected mixed grasses in mid rows and looking after bees and biodiversity.

"Our philosophy is wholly centered on making seriously good wine. We like wines to express their place – to speak of a somewhere-ness rather than of a same-ness, we want you to be able to taste this in our wines." - Anna & Jason Flowerday
