WAIPAPA BAY WINES
CAPTURING NEW ZEALAND’S NATURAL BEAUTY IN EVERY BOTTLE
Marlborough consistently produces the best Sauvignon Blancs in the country with the greatest typicity, earning the grape its unparalleled international acclaim. Our flagship wine is made from fruit grown in Rapaura, the true home of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, where the distinctive terroir imparts ripe citrus and stone fruit aromas and flavors, perfectly balanced by bright acidity.
Pinot Gris is now the third most popular white variety in New Zealand with a signature style: lean wines with intense flavors and fresh acidity. With vineyards in the cooler, maritime climate of Marlborough, our Pinot Gris offers aromas of white stone fruits, honeysuckle, with hints of thyme and tarragon.
In the cool climate of Marlborough, a remarkably crisp and vibrant expression comes through from this versatile grape variety. Subtle vanilla and creamy notes result from careful use of oak and malolactic fermentation, adding layers of texture and flavor that pair with a range of dishes from scallops to grilled chicken and veal.
The long growing season in Canterbury gives these grapes a particular depth and finesse. Our rosé sees twenty-four hours of skin contact, producing a beautifully pale salmon hue and soft aromas of raspberries, strawberries and a floral hint of rose petals.
The name Waipapa (pronounced Why-papa) comes from the laid-back surf spot on the Pacific Ocean, a place of stunning, natural beauty. It is a fantastic spot for wildlife watching and inspired the label design. Waipapa Bay Wines is a proud supporter of Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) as the charity’s first wine industry corporate sponsor, a milestone in Waipapa Bay’s ongoing commitment to supporting global conservation and sustainability efforts.
The vineyards are divided into blocks according to soil and aspect, and are harvested and vinified separately. Once fermentation is completed the different tanks are then assessed and carefully blended to create the four Waipapa Bay wines.
Each of our wines offers consistency and authenticity through dedicated viticulture and winemaking, resulting in fresh and balanced wines that are delicious on their own and serve as exceptional accompaniments to food.
In tandem with the launch of the 2019 vintage in the USA, Waipapa Bay Wines is a proud supporter of Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) as the charity’s first wine industry corporate sponsor, a milestone in Waipapa Bay’s ongoing commitment to supporting global conservation and sustainability efforts.
