Our Wines

Mt Beautiful Winery Portfolio

Mt. Beautiful wines are not only different from most New Zealand wines by way of their North Canterbury location, but they are also different in style. The wine style captures the essence of New Zealand while embracing a more restrained approach, with harmony and balance:

• Sauvignon Blanc that restrains grassiness while playing up the decadent tropical flavors and crisp finish
• Opulent, round Pinot Gris showing apples, pears and a touch of honey
• Velvety yet crisp Chardonnay with notes of stone fruits and persistent minerality
• Riesling offering a textural adventure of bright acidity and off-dry floral and citrus flavors
• Subtle, sophisticated Pinot Noir featuring black cherry and violet aromas
• Traditionally made Rosé with hints of fresh-cut watermelon and pink grapefruit

Winemaker Sam Weaver describes the winemaking style as clean wines with "drive" and length of flavor. They show abundant fruit but “pull in the reins” to manage it with more balance.
