Hawkshead, Gibbston Valley and Central Otago

Hawkshead is a small, specialised producer of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling from Central Otago.

Based in the Gibbston Valley, just 25 minutes from Queenstown, Denis Marshall was one of the ‘Pinot Pioneers’ of the region, purchasing land in 1995 and planting his first Pinot Noir vines in 2001. He and partner Ulrike Kurenbach, who grew up in Germany’s world-renowned Riesling country the Rhineland, both have a passion for premium quality wine. They returned to the vineyard to realise a shared dream and establish the Hawkshead brand after working in the UK. They are both totally involved in all aspects of viticulture, production and marketing, and now produce their wines from a range of the best vineyards in Central Otago.

Hawkshead wines have been awarded numerous gold medals and five-star accolades for their wines in local and international wine shows.

Colour Notes

Sun-bleached straw.

Aroma Notes

Spicy maraschino cherry, lime and pink grapefruit aromatics.

Palate Notes

This Riesling is off-dry, and a true expression of the grape variety. A crushed rock mineral driven palate, showing a generous citrus flavor profile with a strong persistent finish. Alcohol: 12.5%
