Matahiwi Steps Up

17-Nov-2010
The wider Wairarapa wine growing region has always stood behind the glamour and glitz of Martinborough. Yet Martinborough is in reality a sub-region, and the whole of the Wairarapa shares much of the general climate and growing conditions. The elder statesman, at least in modern times is Gladstone Vineyard, who has prospered and cemented its place as the leader in terms of recognition and success. Relative newcomer Matahiwi Estate has had six vintages behind it now, and can be seen as stepping up to as quality and production has become much more consistent. Matahiwi's size and state-of-the-art winery promise even more. A recent visit saw these wines. www.matahiwi.co.nz
