Our top New World Wine Producers

AKARUA

AKARUA

Established in 1996 by Sir Clifford Skeggs, ‘Akarua’ was one of the first larger scale producers to commit to Central Otago’s harsh yet alluring terrain for winemaking and acquired one of the highest and most stunning elevated north facing sites in the region.

KUMEU RIVER

KUMEU RIVER

The Brajkovich family emigrated to NZ from Croatia in 1937 and began working on vineyards and orchards in the Auckland area until they saved enough money to purchase their own Kumeu property and a small vineyard in 1944. It was here the legend was born.

MT DIFFICULTY

MT DIFFICULTY

Mt Difficulty is arguably one of NZ's most well recognised and iconic wine brands. The Mt Difficulty story started in the early 90s where the owners of 5 newly planted vineyards in the Bannockburn region of Central Otago decided to work together to make wines under one label.

CONSUME CONSCIOUSLY

During the wine production process, the wine becomes clouded because of tartrates, tannins and phenolics. Over time these settle and the wine appears clear and smooth, although some producers speed up this process with fining agents. Traditionally, the fining agents used contained animal products such as egg whites or milk protein. This collection is made up of wines that either use no fining agents at all, or vegan-friendly options such as agents made of clay.

Biodynamic winemaking is a holistic concept encompassing the health of an entire vineyard. All-in-all, this means the wine is produced with a spiritual, ethical and ecological approach. The New World jumped on the idea long ago, ensuring their vineyards will not only stand the test of time, but that their great quality wine doesn’t cost the earth.

‘If it ain’t broke don’t fix it’, this rings especially true when it comes to wine. Over time, winemaking practices have deviated further and further from natural winemaking. Luckily for us, some vintners believe the old ways are best. When picking from this collection you can rest assured the wines have been produced with no additives such as sugar, acidity regulators, cultivated yeasts, colourants or sulphites. Natural wine is just as it says it is, natural.

The journey of a grape from vine to wine has changed over time, involving more processing and chemical intervention than ever before. Luckily, some farmers don’t agree with this change and believe that the old ways are best. These farmers nurture the grape through the entire process without using artificial chemical fungicides, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides or preservatives. The results speak for themselves.
