Kahurangi Estate Regional Series aims to capture the essence of several well know NZ wine-growing regions. Montepulciano is not commonly grown in New Zealand but has found a home in the heart of Upper Moutere with small plantings of this Central Italian classic.

Intensely deep purple in colour, the nose shows subtle characters of savoury dark cherries. A medium-bodied dry wine, it exhibits soft tannins with juicy dark berry flavours and soft notes of dried tobacco and thyme.

Reviews & Awards

4.5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2022

By Sam Kim

Richly fruited and generously expressed, the wine shows yellow peach, vanillin oak, brioche and butterscotch characters on the nose, followed by a plush palate that's ripe and creamy. Opulent and flavoursome with a lengthy velvety finish

Rating: 91/100
Premium - Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier 2022

By Cameron Douglas

A very promising wine with a youthful, lifted fruit centric bouquet driven by scents of dark cherry and preserved plum, there’s a layer of darker spice with clove and vanilla then rosewood. On the palate - dry, taut, palate squeezing acid line with flavours of ripe and trat cherry, moderate tannins and a moment of citrus peel. A wine very much in its youth needing time to cellar and develop. Best drinking from 2024 through 2030 or before then with high protein food.

Rating: 92/100
