We make wine to be enjoyed. It’s what we’re good at and what we’ve been doing for the last 30 years.
These are the original wines of Sherwood Estate and share the family name. They are the wines we have become known and respected for and we are proud to put our signature on them.
We created the Sherwood range of wines to showcase the characteristics of Waipara Valley fruit. They are premium, every day wines, made in a ‘hands-off’ style with little interruption in the winery. Little has changed in our approach to the making of these wines and they have great fruit intensity whilst still subtly refined.
Stoney Range is our flagship wine and the most popular of our wines in New Zealand. We created these wines to be fun and full of fruit flavour with exceptional value for money. They are the perfect wine for any occasion.
Stoney Range Reserve
Stoney Range Reserve is our premium offering in New Zealand and is the next level up in quality from the Stoney Range wines. These wines are bold and made with more traditional winemaking methods to create a superior product. This is our newest range of wines and was released to celebrate 30 years of winemaking.
These wines embody our passion for New Zealand. They layer passion and flavour to create a wine we like to describe as exuberant. Just like us they are energetic, exciting and cheerful. These wines represent the fun side of Sherwood Estate, they are exciting and innovative, from the way we make the wine to the outstanding flavours and creative imagery and design.
Sauvignon Blanc (reserve)
For us these wines are about acknowledging those pioneers of the land who came before us. It is their endeavours that have enables us to grow wine successfully today. We use pioneering wine styles and more European winemaking techniques such as experimental temperatures, prolonged skin contact, indigenous yeasts and natural fermentation.
These are our top level, premium wines and are only made from vintages where the vineyard conditions have produced truly exceptional examples of the varieties.
A wonderfully elegant sparkling wine made in traditional methods from select parcels of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Made in limited quantities every two years this is a wine to be savoured.
Laverique Méthode traditionelle
From the first vintage we have put personal dedication into every bottle of wine we have made. The Family Collection wines are our favourite wines, made from only the very best fruit from the best vintages. They are our premium wines, carefully selected by Jill and Dayne as those that show exceptional flavour profiles and regional characteristics. They are the wines we choose to share with our family and friends. For us, these wines are about enjoyment.
We are proud to be the New Zealand distributor of a number of world-class international wines.
