Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"Delicate notes of apple blossom, nectarine, honeysuckle, lime zest – with mineral undertones. On the palate – intense lime, zesty mandarin and ripe red apple. Bright acidity brings freshness and balances with generous fruit sweetness. These two aspects are accentuated by the natural spritz retained from fermentation which provides lift in the mid-palate. The reprise is long and lingering with a satisfyingly crisp cleansing texture.

Our organically grown grapes are hand harvested then whole bunch pressed gently over several hours. The must settled overnight before being racked off gross solids, taking only fluffy lees. Fermentation is allowed to proceed slowly at low temperature and stopped when the sugar, acid, alcohol and phenolics are in balance. 10% was wild fermented in old French oak barrels. We hold this wine at a cool temperature for the remainder of it’s time in the cellar to retain the natural co2 spritz from primary ferment. The wine is racked and spends 6 months on fine lees before bottling."

Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2022 (2021 Vintage)
"Aromas of mandarin and sweet lemon, ripe red apple, blossoms and a core cold wet stone mineral quality. There’s a flinty note as well. Off-dry on the palate with a medium sweetness as the wine touches the palate. Contrasting acidity brings an immediate balance with the fruits flavours of citrus and tree fruits dominating. Flavours of white flowers and pear tart-tatin add depth and complexity. A delicious wine – perfect as an aperitif or a great match with slightly spicy starter courses. Best drinking from 2022 through 2032+."

  • The Boneline is a family business who started planting in 1989, continuing to craft wine exclusively from this original vineyard, in their own winery. They were one of the early Waipara vineyard pioneers, recognising the areas potential as a premium wine region.

  • Boneline's location was selected on the basis of meeting rigorous selection criteria: frost-free micro climate, north-facing and north of the Ashley River, with a limestone and gravel base. Grape varieties have been matched to the sites across four unique levels of terraces to maximise grape potential.

  • Boneline's Cellar Door offers seated tastings, a sharing-style snacks menu, a library wine selection (previous vintages), and a wine store. They also host weddings and events.

  • On weekends a Vineyard walkway is open for cellar door guests to walk the property and learn about the various blocks (there are 22 signs along the way).

  • Boneline has Biogro-certified organic vineyards and are members of NZ Winegrower's Sustainable Vineyards/Wineries programme.
