Summerhouse is in the inland part of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, heading towards the West Coast from Renwick, along State Highway 63. Owners Heather and Meric Davies put their heart in to everything that comes out of the winery. From tending to the vines through to the finished product it is hands on all the way. Made in traditional style and concentrating on wine as a reflection of the terroir these wines are truly unique. Even the vine stock and genus were selected specifically for the area. Summerhouse is a 24 hectare vineyard, founded by Heather and Meric Davies in 1995. The Davies are driven by a deep passion for growing quality grapes and sharing the unique qualities of their terroir with others by crafting these ‘single vineyard’ wines. Concentrating on the vineyard and tending their own vines ensures Summerhouse‘s wines have a wonderful purity of flavour and are a true reflection of the grape variety, vineyard and region. The Davies’ passion for growing quality grapes, attention to detail and making fine wine has seen Summerhouse win a number of reviews and awards. The butterfly on the label represents freedom and epitomises the Davies’ ideal lifestyle.
Brillant pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The bouquet is fresh, tightly held and piercing with steely aromas of tropical fruits and exotic herbs, revealing subtle nutty elements. This is refreshing and mouthwatering. The wine carries to a light, dry finish.
