Kauri Bay 

Kauri Bay makes expressive single-vineyard wines hand-crafted by one of New Zealand’s top winemakers, Mr. Steve Bird. Steve achieved international acclaim for his work at premium pioneer Morton Estate, and later at Thornbury Wines - a brand that earned Wine Spectator Annual Top 100 success. The Kauri Bay single-vineyard range showcases the very best of variety and region, reflecting Marlborough’s unique terroir. The range includes a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, a tropical and fruity Pinot Gris and a rich and alluring Pinot Noir.


Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc

Estate fruit for this wine comes from the “Maven” vineyard, a single-vineyard near the stony banks of Marlborough’s Wairau River. Carefully controlled leaf picking by block has impacted on the fruit’s flavor and composition of this wine and has lead to ripe, deep tropical flavors. On the nose wonderfully fragrant aromas of passion fruit and citrus abound. The palate is succulent and fruity showing all the attributes of great Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. There is a fine acidity that can be felt in the wine giving it excellent balance and a clean crisp snap to the finish.

Pinot Gris
Pinot Gris

This wine is made from grapes from the “Old School House” vineyard in Marlborough’s Omaka Valley. This vineyard boasts a perfect combination of free draining alluvial shingle subsoils and a generous topping of friable clay loam. In planting the vineyard the viticulturalist was keen to exploit the natural assets and attributes of the site, and therefore chose to grow a range of distinctly aromatic white wines and several clones of Pinot Gris. This has proven to be an inspired decision resulting in wines with astonishing purity of varietal fruit and vibrant structure. An intriguing wine with an abundance of fresh peachy fruit and spicy aroma. The palate has outstanding weight with a beautiful fleshy texture. Concentrated flavors of stone fruit and spice persist through the length of the wine giving a lingering, elegant finish.

Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir

The Pinot Noir grapes are from a single-vineyard identical to that of the Pinot Gris. In planting the vineyard the viticulturalist was keen to exploit the natural assets and attributes of the site, and therefore chose to grow a range of distinctly aromatic white wines and several clones of Pinot Noir. The wine is barrel aged in French oak for 12 months. Complex, rich and seductive, this wine overflows with ripe berry-fruit character. There are hints of earth, chocolate, and dried fruits on the palate. The structure is soft and supple with velvety tannins carrying the flavor all the way to the back of the tongue.
