Fodor's Review

Jane Hunter was described by the London Sunday Times as the "star of New Zealand wine," with a string of successes as long as a row of vines. Building on the success of her late husband and employing a top-notch winemakers, her wines have remained impressive; the Kaho Roa (oak-aged Sauvignon Blanc) and Pinot Noir are legendary. The Miru Miru (Māori for bubbles), a sparkling blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier grapes, is also a big seller. There's also garden café, an artist-in-residence, and a worthy walk through the 5-acre garden, which features endemic and threatened native plants from the Marlborough region.
