The vision at Te Motu is simple:to produce wines that express the unique terroir of Waiheke's Onetangi Valley and continue to evolve and improve with age. Using only the highest quality fruit, harvested at optimum ripeness, affords a lower intervention, crafted approach. The Te Motu flagship wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The blend varies from year to year and on average only 4500 bottles are made in each vintage.
Onetangi, Waiheke, Auckland, New Zealand
