The first plantings at Mudbrick were in 1992 by Nick and Robyn Jones, who still own and operate the property today. Planted area is now on two distinctively different sites: the Mudbrick Vineyard at Church Bay and Shepherds Point Vineyard at Onetangi. Plantings currently include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Syrah Chardonnay and Viognier. Handpicking, hand plunging and gentle basket pressing reflect in the character of our wines. Our Chardonnay exhibits the vibrancy of dry hot Waiheke summers. In addition to our Waiheke range, we also produce a Pinot Noir and white wines from other New Zealand regions. Waiheke is diverse. Although it is identified by its geographical boundaries of being an Island it does have many different microclimates, different soils and characteristics. The purchase of the Shepherds Point vineyard in 1998 allowed us to secure one of the best viticulture blocks on Waiheke Island. The two blocks have quite varied terrain, with Mudbrick being planted on mostly North facing clay slopes and a closer maritime influence, and Shepherds Point laying on gently undulating terrain, within a valley, under the protection of the long Stony Ridge. One of the advantages of having two sites is that we can blend separate wines together to produce a more complex and rewarding result. Differences can be exemplified with our Merlot batches where Shepherds Point provides a strong leather character and Mudbrick gives dense chocolate and plum characters. Selection between and within these different sites adds greater complexity and reward. Read less
