MATT KING, WINEMAKER

Wine is a passion

The first vines were planted at our boutique vineyard nearly 40 years ago by the renowned Giesen brothers. I have been here since the early days and took over as principal winemaker under the name Lone Goat in 2007.

As the vineyard has expanded and matured, we have been reaping the rewards of that pioneering work, and each year our small, dedicated team help us to harvest fruit of increasing intensity and depth to produce a range of outstanding, handcrafted wines.

We hope you enjoy drinking them as much as we enjoy making them.

Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2020

2020

Current release

Sauvignon Blanc

The ultimate taste of summer. This glorious Sauvignon Blanc, made from vines in the heart of the Wairau Valley, is made and bottled in our Canterbury winery. It displays vibrant gooseberry, white peach and passionfruit notes, which are complimented with elegant flinty tones. Nettle with citrus lime notes and focused acids give balance and a refreshing, lingering finish.
