Wine information

Middle-Earth Wines are located in the prized wine region of Nelson, a lesser known area of New Zealand that is tucked away in a nook on the northern end of its southern island. They named their winery after the region’s location which is considered the geographical centre or “middle-earth” of New Zealand, synonymous with the Middle-earth created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Launched in only 2011, the winery is family-owned and operated, and they work 50 hectares across multiple vineyard blocks planted on well-draining, ancient alluvial soils. Their sheep provide natural grass and weed control. From their 100% sustainable vineyards, they produce several ranges of cool climate wines that are balanced and filled with vibrant varietal characters that reflect their vineyards and region. Middle-Earth is their premium line, featuring three whites, a red and a rosé. Their 2019 Chardonnay is subtly reminiscent of southern white Burgundy with its fresh crisp orchard fruit, melon and gentle nuances of oak, almond and hazelnut. 

Robin says 'Middle-Earth uses Burgundian yeasts in their vinification which adds a French nuance to its fruit profile. But they also use a smattering of American oak (alongside French oak) adding a unique twist.'
