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 Sauvignon Blanc has a distinctively different feel than those produced from Marlborough with ample notes of citrus fruits, kiwi and appealing grassy tones of fresh cucumber and celery.

Robin says 'Marlbourough is New Zealand's main region for distinctive Sauvignon Blanc wines which is known for its telltale passion fruit notes. But there are so many other regions for delicious Sauvignon in the country, such as this one from Nelson which offers a different yet appealing fruit profile that reflects a more Loire Valley style.'
