Jealous Sisters wines are full flavoured and fruit driven, reflecting new world styles and the unique terroir of our vineyards. They are easy to drink now or over the next 2-3 years.,
The story behind our Jealous Sisters range comes from local Maori legend of beautiful twin sisters Retutai and Tangimoana who lived on the stony banks of the Ruamahanga River. A handsome local warrior named Rautoroa heard of their beauty and came bearing gifts. Their hearts went out to him and soon the sisters became jealous of each other. Tangimoana cruelly tricked her sister and married Rautoroa. Heartbroken, Retutai climbed up into the mountain mists and was never seen again.
Jealous Sisters is made with heartfelt passion from vines planted on the old Ruamahanga Riverbed.
The range includes Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.
