Sauvignon Blanc 2016
This Sauvignon Blanc has a fresh tropical bouquet with subtle hints of gooseberry and soft apple notes. These are followed through on the palate. The wine is dry and is a light soft style avoiding aggressive acidity but finishing on a soft refreshing note.

Sorry sold out
With floral notes and hints of honey tones and apricot, the wine has a luscious and full flavour. It displays citrus and lime characters with a beautifully balanced acidity in a full, harmonious culminating finish.
"It is youthful, yet instantly appealing on the nose displaying mandarin, lemon/lime zest and white stone fruit characters with a hint of flinty complexity. The palate is focused and tightly structured,and offers excellent fruit purity and concentration, beautifully enhanced with subtle sweetness and bright acidity. Medium-dry. At its best : now to 2026" Sam Kim

Our flagship wine - one of New Zealand’s most awarded Gewürztraminers, the Johanneshof vintage 2017 is full and lengthy with softly concentrated
aromas of rose-petal florals, Turkish Delight, honey, and fresh, steely, root-ginger notes. This has excellent presence, balance and unfolds layers of detail. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has up-front and intense flavours of Turkish Delight, rose-petal florals, savoury honey and musk notes, entwined with root-ginger elements.

Johanneshof Cellars Pinot Noir 2016 Maybern Single Vineyard Reserve
Our Maybern vineyard is a tribute to Warwick's parents May and Bernard - The Maybern vineyard is located here behind our cellar door in Koromiko - it is a 30 degree North West facing steep slope - making mechanical intervention tricky- all work on this vineyard is done by hand!
This Pinot is round and ripe for it's age, the flavours of cherries linger with a warm chocolate and raspberry nuanced finish. The soft tannins fill out the palate and give it a nice ageing potential.
At it's best: now to 2020
