Back in 1986, David and Mark Mason, with friend and winemaker Tony Bish, began with a simple philosophy of making more wine than they could drink, and sharing the rest. They had the perfect place to make it happen, under the shade of Puketapu (sacred hill), along the white, volcanic cliffs and river land gravels of the Dartmoor Valley in Hawke’s Bay. They were precious days by the river with friends, family and food. Sacred Hill is recognised as one of New Zealand's leading, multi award winning wineries. Focusing on the production of premium 'handcrafted' varietal wines the company's estate vineyards are now located in New Zealand's leading grape growing regions of Marlborough, Hawke's Bay and Central Otago.
What The Critics Say
97/100 Bob Campbell MW
"Appealing Rhone-like Syrah, with a core of dark berry fruits together with violet, floral, black pepper and nutty oak flavours. The wine has a rich, silken texture and a backbone of firm, ripe tannins that will no doubt promote longevity. Accessible now, but needs a little time to integrate and reveal potential complexity 01 JUN 2015." Drink 2018 - 2025
98/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
"A totally seductive syrah, the perfumed bouquet shows dark plum, blueberry, floral and subtle nutty oak characters, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that displays outstanding fruity purity and intensity. It is silky, multi-layered and superbly long on the finish. A wine of formidable power yet perfectly poised and irresistibly seamless and lingering. At its best: 2018 to 2030. $60.00. www.sacredhill.com. June 2015." Drink 2018 - 2030
