Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"From one of the oldest plantings of Riesling in Central Otago, this very special block of terraced vines, weaves its way through the Terra Sancta Estate on Felton Road, Bannockburn. Schist and quartz rich soils and the cooler aspect of the site result in a Riesling with orange rind aromas, zesty citrus flavours, minerality, complexity and precision. Minimal winemaking is designed to create balance and showcase the energy and purity of old vine Riesling grown in our special part of the world – Terra Sancta.

Bursting with flavour, an aromatic nose of mandarin and orange blossom leads to a vibrant palate of juicy limes, tangerine and white flowers. Beautiful fresh acidity balances lovely clean fruit sweetness to create a vibrant and harmonious Riesling. A long, mouthwatering finish makes this a complete and delicious wine. Due to its low alcohol it is lovely on its own, but will pair beautifully with many dishes.

Miro’s Block has only 7 rows of vines, and is unique for its terraces cut into the east side of a steep old creek bed wall in the centre of the Sancta Vineyard. Each terrace was cut by hand into the schist and fine textured alluvium of Miro’s Block. These Riesling vines were planted ungrafted in 1995."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"From seven rows of vines, the 2018 vintage is a highly scented, medium-bodied wine, handled in seasoned French oak barriques. It has strong, peachy, lemony, appley flavours, a touch of sweetness (15 grams/litre of residual sugar), lively acidity, and a finely balanced finish. Still youthful, it should be at its best 2021+."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"​Bright and pristine, the attractively lifted bouquet shows white flesh nectarine, Granny Smith apple and lemon/lime peel aromas with a lovely floral overtone. It’s brilliantly focused on the palate, offering fine texture and excellent fruit purity together with subtle toasty complexity, finishing persistent and crisp dry. At its best: now to 2027"

    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.
