Tasting Notes: Displaying aromatic gooseberry, guava and passionfruit notes, the palate is crisp, tangy and refreshing with a lengthy, citrus finish.




Sherwood Estate was founded by Dayne and Jill Sherwood in 1987. The vineyards and winery are located in the Waipara Valley, on the East coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Started as a 20-acre husband-and-wife business, it is now one of the largest independent wineries in New Zealand. In the 1980’s the New Zealand wine industry saw bumper crops and a fall in demand leading to several wineries going out of business. While many gave up, the Sherwoods saw only opportunity. The family was one of the first in the area to establish large vineyards and high-capacity winery production facilities.

Their quintessential Kiwi “can-do” attitude touches every aspect of the business, from vineyard management to building relationships with customers. They call themselves “winemakers with the personal touch.” This level of involvement allows them to maintain the very highest standards.
