Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Tempranillo is the great grape of Spain responsible for the famous, sumptuous reds of Rioja. The perfect growing conditions of 2021 produced this intensely flavoured wine. This rich and bold wine shows ripe flavours of plum and dark berries intermingled with hints of chocolate and subtle smoky tones. The palate is round and generous with tannins that are well integrated with French oak.

Just 96 cases were made of this rare New Zealand example. The grapes were crushed to small open top fermenters and the wine fermented to dryness. Post fermentation maceration was for 8 days when desired tannin extraction was achieved. The wine was pressed to barrel for maturation with 60% of barrels being new French oak.  Natural malolactic fermentation was completed by spring. Tempranillo is perhaps one of the most food friendly wines. The earthy component compliments roasted red meats and it would also suit barbequed meat.  Its Spanish origins means it would make the perfect accompaniment to tapas such as hams, salamis, olives, and cheese."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"Sweetly fruited and complex on the nose with dark plum, cedar, rich floral and warm spice aromas, it's succulent and plush in the mouth offering excellent fruit intensity combined with silky texture and fleshy mouthfeel, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2028."

92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, September 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"Youthful, fleshy, fruity and with some spice highlights. Aromas and flavours of fresh ripe strawberries and blueberry fruits, a touch of ginger then a fresh meaty quality, nutmeg and clove, some vanilla and earthy flavours of clay and rock. Balanced and ready to drink with moderate tannin levels and a youthful acid line, core fruit flavours of berries then charcuterie and spice. Best drinking from 2023 through 2028."

  • Mount Brown Estates is located in the foothills of Waipara Valley's Mount Brown, in the North Canterbury wine region.
  • From truly humble beginnings (a small abandoned vineyard overgrown with waist-high weeds), Tony Rutherford and his daughter Catherine Keith have since turned their once-daunting vision into reality, now boasting three award-winning vineyards and a winery.
  • Mount Brown Estates keeps their whole process—from grape to bottle—in-house, to be able to ensure desired quality standards. This was made possible when they built their winery and bottling line on the Lime Loader vineyard in 2013.
  • The foundation for their success is built on their gold medal-winning Riesling and Pinot Noir.
  • A wide-ranging recognition is increasingly coming from their Pinot Gris, which is perfectly suited to the North Canterbury terroir.
