Sherwood Estate New Releases

Dayne and Jill Sherwood have operated Sherwood Wines in Waipara for over 25 years. To this day, they remain hands-on and fully involved in all aspects of the growing of the fruit, winemaking, business administration and marketing. Drawing fruit from five vineyards in the Waipara Valley as well as Marlborough, the wines are made in their Waipara Valley winery under the eyes of industry veteran Petter Evans. Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the key varieties, the latter a speciality, but small lots of innovative styles are also made, such as Syrah. The wines and labelling are ever-evolving as the Shewoods raise the bar. Exports cover the majority of sales, but a growing domestic presence is being seen with the varietal ‘Stoney Range and ‘Stratum’ tiers, the core ‘Signature Family’ range and the limited production ‘Waipara Collection’ wines. Here, I review new releases in these ranges.
