Sacred Hill ‘Orange’, ‘Reserve’, ‘HALO’, Ti Point and Wild South Releases

14-Oct-2015
A diverse range of brands is managed under the Sacred Hill umbrella, giving them all an opportunity to flourish in a crowded market place. The key to success is the individuality and own story of each brand, and their target audience. Sacred Hill’s ever-popular ‘Orange Label’ wines are the most accessible and widely seen offering varietal and regional expression. The ‘Reserve’ range was introduced earlier this year (click here to see my reviews) to sit between the ‘Orange Label’ and ‘HALO’ tiers "to make everyday a little special”. The ‘HALO’ brand, original an on-premise label is of distinctive wines made from smaller parcels from premium vineyards. www.sacredhill.com‘Wild South’ are exclusively Marlborough-fruited wines, and was the former ‘Cairnbrae’ label which was purchased, along with vineyards in 2001. www.wildsouthwines.co.nz And ‘Ti Point’ is the wine venture of the Haslam family, originally based on their Matakana vineyard, but now incorporating fruit from other districts. Winemaker Tracy Haslam is married to Sacred Hill founder David Mason. The wines come under the Sacred Hill distribution network. www.tipoint.co.nz The wines, made by different winemaking teams, come under the overview of Sacred Hill’s chief winemaker Tony Bish. Here, I review a selection of wines demonstrating the diversity.
