2014 Sauvignon Blanc. Kumeu.

The fruit for this wine was grown on our home vineyard at Kumeu. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were cold fermented and the wine is un-oaked to retain its essential vibrancy. This wine is a light straw colour, with luscious ripe tropical fruit flavours balancing with a zestiness enhancing the capsicum and tropical lime aromas. Produced in a very ripe style, the palate is weighty, with great structure and length. Ready to drink now, it will also benefit from aging. This wine loves to accompany lighter meats, pasta and seafood.

2011 Limited Release Chardonnay Kumeu

Grapes grown on our home vineyard at Kumeu.

The summer of 2011 made this very unique Limited Release Chardonnay.
The leaves around the bunches were remove by hand exposing the fruit to the sun. The small berries became like raisins. This gives this wine an intense golden colour and a very rich on the pallet. This in a meal in a glass. Soft and fruity with a delicate hint of oak. This is a favorite of mine.

2014 Bella Rosa Kumeu.

This Rose' wine we first made in 2009 and has been a hit from the first sip. The 2014 vintage is very much like our first vintage the 2009, also made from our famous Pinotage grapes, the juice was allowed to spend a few hours in contact with the skins before the it was pressed off for fermentation. This enabled the juice to pick up a delicate rose petal pink colour. It is very difficult to judge this amount of time for skin contact. If contact is too long the wine is too dark. If too short the colour is too light. Add some red wine I hear you say, the problem with this is you also add back tannin, which makes this gentle wine hard on the palate. We feel we got this skin contact time spot on!

A delicate light salmon pink in colour, with the classic Rose' bouquet of rose petal with strawberry, and Pink Marshmallow. Just a touch of sweetness.
SERVE CHILLED. This wine fills your mouth with pleasure.

2013 vintage was very small and we had drought conditions leading up to harvest.

With these conditions we decided to make this true Reserve Pinotage.  The best bunches from the best vines where selected. This yielded only 687 bottles of this delicious wine.

Deep rich ruby red in colour with intense dark red berry flavours. The mouth feel is full and soft. This is the first wine in 27 vintages I have put my name on.

Give it a try you will love it.

Also it is NOT going to be available in the wine shops, so from our cellar ONLY

2009 Pinotage "P'09" Kumeu.

Pinotage 2009 P'09. The fruit for this wine was grown on our home vineyard at Kumeu.

The palate is well structured, velvety warm with lifted vibrant primary fruit characters and soft tannins.This classic Kumeu Pinotage is ready now and will develop further varietal complexities with time. Enjoy it all year long on the verandah with friends for a cruisy afternoon. Great with soups, pasta, game and other meats. Try it with chocolate and fruit cake.

2010 Pamela Syrah. Kumeu

Kerr Farm Pamela Syrah is a grape we started growing in 2005 and the first wine was made in 2007. It was Jaison's mother Pamela's 80th birthday in 2007 so we named this Syrah after her.

The grapes were hand picked on a beautiful sunny day in April 2010. Destemmed and crushed directly into an open top fermentation tank, it fermented for about 3 weeks. The must spent a further few weeks macerating on the skins to extract flavour, tannin and colour. The must was then pressed and the skins removed. The wine was racked into two barrels. One new American oak barrel and a one year old French barrel. Here it stayed until early May 2011. It was egg white fined and allowed to settle. The bright wine was minimally filtered and then bottled.
The bottles are heavy, tall, Premium Bordeaux bottles with a cork closure and hand dipped sealing wax.
Deep purple red in colour, seductively perfumed. Juicy red berry fruit characters and hints of spice and white pepper on the palate
ONLY 45 CASES MADE. Available from the cellar door and online.

Jaison Reserve Syrah 2013

Kerr Farm Jaison RESERVE Syrah 2013 is a very special wine. 2013 was a very small crop and a drought season. So we decided to make a true Reserve wine. A Reserve wine is when the vineyard owner or winemaker reserves the very best grapes for him or herself. So very small quantities where made.  Syrah is a grape we started growing in 2005 and the first wine was made in 2007.

The grapes were hand picked on a beautiful sunny day in April 2013. Destemmed and crushed directly into an open top fermentation tank, it fermented for about 4 weeks. The must spent a further few weeks macerating on the skins to extract flavour, tannin and colour. The must was then pressed and the skins removed. The wine was racked into French and American Oak barrels.  Here it stayed until early May 2014. It was egg white fined and allowed to settle. The bright wine was minimally filtered and then bottled.
The bottles are heavy, tall, Premium Bordeaux bottles with a screwcap closure.
Deep purple red in colour, seductively perfumed. Juicy red berry fruit characters and hints of spice and white pepper on the palate

2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. Kumeu

This Cabernet Sauvignon was picked from our home vineyard at Kumeu, crushed into open top fermenters, hand plunged every 4-6 hours during fermentation, and then macerated for 10 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 11 months in new and 2 year old French and American oak barriques. Rich red in colour. Wild cherry, berry, peppery characters dominate the nose, and an under-layer of earthiness follows smoothly through creating the warm, rich mid palate and a long savoury finish. As this wine has aged it has developed the classic Cabernet Sauvignon characters of leather, cedar and Tabaco. Have you every smelt a cedar cigar box, well that is it. Perfect Cabernet Sauvignon

2010 Sweet Summer Wine Kumeu "Art Series Label"

This wine is called Kerr Farm Sweet Summer Wine. It is the same wine as the Twenty Two above but is part of our new "Art Series" labels. Selected wines will be labelled with designer labels, in restricted  quantities. The 22 theme continues on this label with a 22 on the back of the surfers swimmers. The famous surfing beach of Muriwai is close by to Kerr Farm Vineyard.The wine is called Twenty Two because 2010 is the first year in twenty two vintages that we have had such a long, hot, dry summer and autumn. This enabled us to hang the grapes on the vine until late May, harvesting about five weeks later than normal for these vines. This is a late harvest sweet wine from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes, giving honey and orange marmalade flavours. Although sweet, the acidity of Sauvignon Blanc gives a crisp finish with no cloying. This is a delicious dessert wine or pre-dinner aperitif. 375ml bottles
