The Oddbins Take

Did you know that Kauri trees can stand up to 50m high?


The immense height of these trees allows them to dominate forest canopies and makes them an effective winemaking tool for crushing grapes. Each harvest, Alan McCorkindale takes a trip to find one of the ancient giants, climbing it with his parcels of Sauvignon Blanc grapes. He then drops the grapes back down into a tank, one by one, releasing deliciously zingy juices for his wine as the impact crushes the fruit.


Clean, crisp and refreshingly fruity, this Marlborough white wine is named in honour of the Kauri Trees' key part in this unconventional and somewhat fictional method.*


*We confess, it's actually named after these awe-inspiring trees as a reminder of nature's magnificent capabilities, which is why McCorkindale and his team interfere with their grapes as little as possible when making their delicious wines.
