Bushmere Estate

21-Jul-2020
Bushmere Estate is the wine label of David and Shona Egan, grapegrowers in Gisborne for 48 years. All changed when the large companies stopped renewing their grape supply contracts in the early-mid 2000s, so the Egans, as well as other growers established their own label with wines from the 2005 vintage. At that time they established on S.H. 2 their cellar door complex which has a restaurant with it. The Egans have 17 ha of vines in the Central Valley, mainly Chardonnay, along with smaller amounts of Gewurztraminer, Viognier, Montepulciano and Sangiovese. The Bushmere Estate wines are made by Amelia Riwai, initially at Matariki, moving to Alpha Domus where the Egans have contracted tank space. The wines are well-made and have earned good medal awards at shows.
