Margrain Estate

Margrain Vineyard will call you back season after season

Since our inception Margrain Vineyard has quietly gained a reputation for producing a wide range of exceptional wines that exude both complexity and charm. Margrain Home Block Pinot Noir is our flagship wine. This is well complimented by the Margrain Rivers Edge Pinot Noir which is our second label. Whites in our portfolio include the elegant Margrain Chardonnay, the off dry, highly complex Margrain Proprietors Reserve Riesling, the delicate and decidedly moreish Margrain Pinot Rose and the Margrain Sauvignon Blanc made from 100% Martinborough fruit but managing to amalgamate the best Sauvignon Blanc characters from Marlborough and Hawkes Bay.

Two whites deserve particular mention. Margrain Pinot Gris is a stand out in a variety that has rapidly growing popularity. Made from some of the oldest Pinot Gris vines in the country it is made in a completely dry style with no oak aging and has great complexity and depth. Margrain Chenin Blanc is a little known gem and proof that it is possible to make stunning wines from this overlooked variety. It has become something of a cult item and as a result is only sold via mail-order and our cellar door. Late 2008 saw the release of our inaugural Methode Traditionelle, a new addition to our stable and one that we can't wait to share with you.
