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 vineyard's position, in a sheltered valley overlooking the Pacific, ensures it captures full sun; it's located 12 km (8 miles) north of Napier, just north of the town of Bay View before Highways 2 and 5 split.
