Greenhough Vineyards

In late 1990, a young couple left Auckland to re-settle in a rural pocket of Nelson, encouragingly named ‘Hope’. Swapping city for country life, Andrew and Jenny took on a four- hectare property determined to create something of their own. The vineyard had been partially established in the mid-70s by a pioneer amateur winemaker. From a single hectare planted in the mid-1970s, the home vineyards have grown to almost nine. Prized parcels of original vines planted in 1976 remain as some of the oldest in the region. The nearby Morison Vineyard, established in 2000, adds a further four hectares. Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are our mainstays, with small blocks of Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Gewurztraminer providing colour.
This is a bright, lemon-scented chardonnay with a fresh, apricot ripeness. 10 months in French oak barrels gives a touch of spice, as well as a creamy, biscuit character to the warm, luscious orchard fruits. Wonderful tangy citrus freshness to the finish.
Wonderful with a roast
