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. Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is famous throughout the world as one of the most distinctive styles of wine produced. Fresh, vibrant fruit characters and a zingy palate are the classic hallmarks that we strive for in our wines;In order to focus and concentrate these flavours, grape yields are controlled, and the juice is fermented slowly at cooler temperatures;This wine boasts lively aromas of gooseberry, passionfruit and grapefruit, characters which carry through to the palate, which is clean and crisp, and has a long finish.
