Ti Point and Wild South Whites and HALO Reds

10-Dec-2013
The Sacred Hill umbrella covers a range of brands that enable the company to have a larger market presence without being overbearing. Several of the brands have a separate and unique beginning and story, having a distribution partnership with the parent company or being acquired, while others have been directly created by Sacred Hill. In any circumstance, the wines, made by different teams come under the watchful eye of the talented and very highly experienced chief winemaker Tony Bish.

‘Ti Point’ is an example of the first situation, with a vineyard established in Matakana by three generations of the Haslam women, the wines made by Tracy Haslam, her husband being David Mason of Sacred Hill. www.tipoint.co.nz‘Wild South’ is the former Marlborough label of the Murray and Daphne Brown, ‘Cairnbrae’, which was purchased by Sacred Hill in 2001. Christie is the winemaker. www.wildsouthwines.co.nz And ‘HALO’ is a tier designed to target the on-premise market, the wines with premium points of difference in profile and with a more immediate approachability, the fruit from selected parcels. www.sacredhill.com
