Fodor's Review

Winemaker Gordon Russell produces merlot, syrah, and blends with cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and malbec in various combinations, including a rare and expensive red simply called The Terraces. White varieties include chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, riesling, verdelho, chenin blanc, and pinot gris. Look for the Wine-Makers reserve versions of chardonnay, syrah, and merlot-malbec blend to find out what he has done with the best grapes from given years. The winery stands on a north-facing hillside, ensuring it captures full sun; it's 12 km (8 mi) north of Napier, just north of the town of Bay View before Highways 2 and 5 split.
