Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"This fruit comes from three vineyards; the Taylor Vineyard which is in the Rapaura area and the Twin Valleys vineyard, which we have been working with since 2003 and a very small amount of recently planted Clone 1066 from the Mahi home block in front of the winery.

All of the vines were intensively hand-tended and then the grapes hand picked prior to whole-cluster pressing at the winery. The juice goes to barrel with high solids and ferments totally with the indigenous yeasts that arrive with the fruit. All the wine is fermented in French oak barriques and sits on the yeast lees for eleven months prior to taking it to bottle.

In order to retain the structure of the wine we only allow a small portion of the blend to go through malolactic, meaning that the wine maintains elegance with age. It also allows the wine to be enjoyed with a wide range of foods, rather than dominating dishes."


Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Smoky, toasty, fruity, rich and complex bouquet. Aromas of grapefruit and spice, nut, oak spices, roasted apple and peach, lemon and pith. On the palate – full-bodied, rich and complex in flavour and texture with new-ish barrel spices and grip, medium+ acidity then flavours of roasted stone fruits and citrus, baking spices and crush stone mineral suggestions. Balanced and well made, youthful, tense and lengthy. A lovely wine ready to enjoy from 2021 through 2027+."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2017 Vintage)
"A beautifully styled chardonnay; the complex bouquet shows ripe peach, rockmelon, nougat and hazelnut characters with subtle flinty complexity. The palate is equally attractive and engaging, wonderfully complemented by layers of fine texture and splendidly integrated acidity. At its best: now to 2023."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 vintage was hand-harvested at four sites in the Wairau Valley, fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels and wood-aged for 11 months. Full of youthful drive, it has fresh, strong, citrusy, peachy flavours, showing good complexity, a minerally streak, firm acid spine and a long, dry finish. Best drinking 2020+."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.
