Te Whau “The Point”

Te Whau “The Point”

“The Point” is our flagship Bordeaux-blend, consistently rated nationally and internationally as amongst the very best of its style in New Zealand.

1000 cases per annum.

Named as one of New Zealand’s top Bordeaux blends for the outstanding 2013 vintage by leading wine critic Bob Campbell MW, we are proud to release our flagship wine 2013 Te Whau “The Point”.

Grown on our two steep north-facing vineyards, with low yields and vinified in our two-level winery with wild yeasts, no fining agents and no additives or “processing aids”.  The wine has spent 19 months in top-quality French oak barriques in our underground cellar before being bottled at the winery with minimal sulphur preservative and under cork.

98/100 “This classic Waiheke red reached its apogee in the brilliant 2013 vintage.  Sweet and ripe blackberry, blackcurrant, violet, liquorice, anise and spicy oak flavours are easy to appreciate now, thanks to a structure of ripe tannins.  It’s a safe bet that the wine will cellar very well becoming smoother and more complex with bottle development.  A very collectible wine.”  Bob Campbell MW

The Point is available for purchase at the restaurant and cellar door, or via email to info@tewhau.co.nz.  Prior vintages also available.
