Welcome to Georges Road Wines.

We are a small wine estate located in the Waipara Valley, just 45 minutes north of Christchurch. We are totally focused on producing the best possible wines from our 8 hectare estate using meticulous viticulture and traditional wine making techniques.
We love what we do and you will too.

Syrah Block One 2016

“Even, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple tints, lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly presented with fragrant and aromatic dark-red and black berried fruits entwined with dark herbs, along with suggestions of stalks and cassis liqueur, unfolding black pepper.”

This month in the Cellar…

With Vintage over, all the grape ferments are now completed. The red wines have pressed and put to barrel, the Pinot Gris barrels are getting regular lees stirring for added texture and weight and the Riesling and Rosé wines are both in tank on light lees awaiting the next moves towards spring bottling.

Out in the Vineyard…

Winter is definitely here and the vines are headed towards dormancy. Pruning has started and the woolly lawnmowers are about to move in en masse to start work on the grass.

Pinot Gris Selection 2016

“Bright, even straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-gold hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly presented with pure white and yellow stonefruit aromas along with white florals and a subtle amalgam of nutty lees and oak hints, unfolding a little honeysuckle. This is delicate, but grows in depth and intensity with aeration.”

Rosé Les Terrasses 2016

“Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has fresh, firm, lusciously mouthwatering flavours of strawberries, redcurrants and pomegranates, along with lifted red florals. The mouthfeel is bright and lively with crisp acidity, and the wine flows along a fine-textured phenolic line leading to a thirst-quenching finish of soft red fruits and florals.”
