Matakana Estate has been at the forefront of local winemaking since this premium, boutique wine region was first developed some 30 years ago. Like many respected New Zealand wineries, Matakana Estate was established by descendants of Croatian migrants who settled in and around Auckland more than 100 years ago. From the very beginning, the winery established itself as a producer of top quality wines, attracting attention and plaudits worldwide, and winning a number of awards in international wine competitions. We are situated in the heart of Matakana, a hidden gem of a wine region, which lies between rolling green hills and beautiful sandy beaches less than an hours drive north of Auckland. Rich in culture, the area attracts many visitors to enjoy its fine wines, local foods, busy markets, and art and craft galleries. Our philosophy has always been to capture the essence of New Zealands finest grape varieties from the regions where they grow best, so as well as making wines from our own substantial Matakana vineyards, we seek out limited amounts of premium grapes from selected wine regions further afield to make the very best wines we can. Our Pinot Gris comes from Marlborough, where premium fruit produces a style that is clean and crisp, while also having a wonderful fleshy fruit palate; In similar fashion to our Sauvignon Blanc, the Pinot Gris harvest is controlled and the juice is slowly cool-fermented to help maintain the lively fruit characters. This wine displays lifted aromas of crisp pear, apple and peach. On the palate, there are hints of ripe pear and apple, with a subtle citrus flavour as well, and it is clean and crisp from the start through to its long, full finish.
