There is a windswept elegance to Marlborough’s famed Wairau Valley. It is both the heart of the district and home to some of the country’s most famous wines. The region takes its name from the Wairau River, which flows from the alpine ranges in the west to the ocean at Cloudy Bay.
Wines from the Wairau Valley are rich, elegant, generous and concentrated. Goldwater’s wines are considered by many aficionados to be among the finest of the appellation.

Winery Tasting Notes
We gently harvest during the cool morning hours to retain the bright, pristine characteristics of the grapes. With the fruit arriving at our winery possessing such extraordinary flavours and textures, our primary task is to preserve and enhance those elements.
Our Pinot Noir shows the influence of our unique climate and complex soils. After harvesting, grapes are cold-soaked for six days. We use traditional hand-plunging techniques during fermentation to ensure vibrant colour and fine tannins. The wine is then aged in French oak barriques for eleven months.
The aromas and flavours are packed with black cherries and black currants, with violet nuances. The palate is rich, round, elegant and graceful.
