The unique four-level gravity-fed winery was designed by Oregon Winery Architect Larry Serar. It is set into the Mahana hillside where the “living roof” of native tussock and shrubs allows it to blend gently with the surrounding landscape.
Wingspan wines have been carefully developed over the years to meet premium quality that today have great following around the world, particularly with restaurateurs who require wines to match with food pairings that can deliver a perfect combination to their diners.
The wine region Nelson has a gentle sun-drenched climate and a spectacular landscape ranging from golden sand beaches to rugged, bush-clad mountains. Grapes are grown in Moutere Hills and Waimea Plains: production is small but quality is impressive.
Grapes for this wine were grown on the claybound gravels of Upper Moutere and hand harvested. Following fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 11 months.
A vibrant ruby hue. Perfumed with spiced, macerated raspberries and hints of earth. Soft and generous, the fleshy palate surrounds finely grained tannins.
Grapes for this wine were grown in Nelson from selected vineyards on the Waimea Plains. These sites were chosen for their alluvial soils that give structure and minerality to the wine.
Refreshing aromas of pineapple and passionfruit with subtle minerality. A ripe entrance of juicy tropical fruit and balanced acidity on the palate. The perfect accompaniment to fresh seafood or a seasonal platter.
