Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Te Whare Ra has a long standing reputation for producing one of New Zealand’s finest Gewürztraminers and much of the credit must go to the vineyard here. This wine is produced solely from 14 rows in the old block which were planted in 1979 and are some of the oldest vines in Marlborough at 38 years of age. Part of the reason for our conversion to organic and biodynamic farming was to rescue these old vines and coax them back to life. We saw huge potential in this old block and successfully rejuvenating them has been one of our greatest achievements. They are very low-cropping, which is not great for the accountant’s numbers, but this is worth it for the amazing complexity and concentration we get from the fruit and the exceptional quality of the resultant wines.

Intensely perfumed, with notes of lychees, ripe oranges and cloves. These lead into luscious varietal flavours of lychee and quince, with underlying characters of ginger and exotic spice. The palate shows intense fruit concentration and weight with a fine, soft texture and excellent persistence of flavour. This wine is off dry and continues the outstanding quality of previous vintages of our Te Whare Ra Gewürztraminer."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2019 Vintage)
"Gentle, restrained gewürztraminer with classic Turkish Delight, rose petal, lychee and subtle spicy flavours. A strongly varietal wine in a medium-dry style. Perfectly balanced and deliciously drinkable."


Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Classic, ripe, pure and distinctive with aromas of yellow rose and sweet lavender, ripe apple and pear, exotic spices and fruits with moments of fresh lychee and fruit Sunday market smells. On the palate – silky texture with a core of fruit flavours that reflect the nose, medium+ acidity and classic aromatic spices of Gewurztraminer. Balanced , refreshing and well made with a lengthy finish. Best drinking from today and through 2025."

5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"An outstanding expression of the variety, the elegantly perfumed bouquet shows tropical fruit, stone fruit, rose petal and subtle spice aromas, followed by a gracefully styled palate that is succulent and fleshy. The wine exhibits lovely fruit purity and intensity, backed by silky mouthfeel and refreshing acidity. Youthfully charming, this is promising to evolve graciously. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2028. Certified organic."

    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.

  • 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.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
