Wild Rock Wine Company

Wild Rock was established with a distinct philosophy in mind; to produce wines that represent the best flavors of New Zealand, from north to south, east to west. Grapes for their red wines are sourced from the Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district, Chardonnay grapes are sourced from the coastal vineyards of Hawke’s bay, Pinot Noir is sourced from Martinborough, Marlborough and Otago, and for the Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough and Nelson. Each vineyard is selected for having the very best soils in small areas with unique climates. The Managing Director of Wild Rock is a man with incredible experience, Mr. Steve Smith, who holds the highly prestigious qualification of Master of Wine. He heads a team of young New Zealand wine makers who have served their apprenticeships in the wider wine world and come back to New Zealand to work for Wild Rock Wine Company.

Central Otago, the world’s most southerly wine region is making a name for itself as a hot spot for Pinot Noir. The climate and soils are perfect to produce fantastic Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is the grape variety that evokes the most passion and feeling amongst wine drinkers and this wine is called Cupids Arrow because, “like love, once you become taken with Pinot it is impossible to ignore. Cupid has struck you with an arrow and made you a Pinotphile”. Using the newest available clones from Dijon, France, this dense ruby red in color Pinot Noir has red berry and black cherry fruits mixed with wild herb and floral characters. The palate is complex and supple with red berry, plum-stone, cherry fruit characters and floral notes. It has fine, sandy tannins and a supporting acidity draws the wine into a long finish.
