Also please see the next page for our renowned Johanneshof Cellars Methode Traditionnelle - handcrafted sparkling wine from Marlborough made with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the traditional Champagne method.
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.
With floral notes and hints of honey and apricot tones, the wine has a luscious and full flavour. It displays citrus and lime characters with a beautifully balanced acidity, culminating in a full, harmonious finish.
Johanneshof Cellars 2011 Noble Late Harvest Riesling
A bright golden yellow coloured late harvest Riesling - perfect accompanied by panna cotta, creme caramel and creme brulee (or a fantastic match with a complex cheeseboard!)
Plenty of botrytis influence help drive this rich wine although the Riesling character is still evident. With a highly concentrated nose of lemon and lime, the palate has delicate flavours of apricot, almond and tropical fruit.
Pinot Gris 2016
Our medium -dry Pinot Gris has a fragrant and fruity bouquet of stone fruit with pear and honeysuckle tones. The wine is luscious with delicate flavours of guava, peach and pears. This wine is mouth-filling, succulent and juicy, stimulating the appetite finishing with a fresh, crisp acidity.

One of four Gold medal wines out of over 100 Pinot Gris entries
Our flagship wine - one of New Zealand’s most awarded Gewürztraminers, the Johanneshof vintage 2014 explodes with aromas of Turkish Delight, raisins and marzipan. The palate is weighty, powerful and opulent with its notes of rose petals and spice. A complex yet elegant wine unlike any other.

Johanneshof Cellars 2014 Pinot Noir 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 2019.
