A classic style wine that showcases the quality of wines from Marlborough. It is a blend from three vineyards in two different subregions, one being in the cooler Awatere Valley (leading to more restrained wine with great texture) and the others in the warmer Wairau Valley (lovely line of minerality with riper tropical notes and fleshiness).

About Te Whare Ra

Te Whare Ra (TWR), the "house in the sun", is a small vineyard and winery located in the Marlborough sub-region of Renwick. It is the oldest boutique winery in Marborough. Established 1979 in Renwick, it has some of the oldest Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer vines in the region.

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 planted with 7 different varietals 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 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
