ROSÉ 2021

The Gimblett Gravels is an old river bed and the soil is a mixture of loose gravel, sand and silt the latin word for this is Alluvius.

This a dry rose made by bleeding some juice off our top red Merlot grapes within a couple of hours of being taken off the stalks and transferred to a vat for fermentation.

Swirl in your glass and smell wild strawberries and yellow peach aromas mingled with cinnamon. Lovely flavours of strawberries, wild dried herbs and a touch of spice with a silky texture but crisp refreshing finish.

Bumble Bee


The first Pinot Gris grapes were hand-picked by the wine making team and they were so ripe that the bees were swarming all over the bunches and picking bins. The bees clearly thought they were perfect grapes so hopefully you enjoy this as much as they did!

Ripe pear and gentle baking spice aromas mingle with rose petals. Lush and velvety in the mouth with flavours of pears, apricots and cinnamon.

As the sword Excalibur was drawn from stone, this wine is created from the Stones of our Gimblett Gravels vineyard. In ancient times the Sword Makers were the master craftsmen of the day, carefully blending different percentages of metals to make a stronger sword. The same is true with this wine, each year we carefully craft a blend of the three grapes we grow to ensure the resultant wine is better than it’s individual parts.

Aromas of ripe dark plums, along with layers of nutmeg, allspice and vanilla. Smooth velvet texture with flavours of blackcurrant, blackberry and black olives. Lovely now but will cellar well with care.

Sauvignon Blanc 2023

In true Unison fashion this wine is certainly not a mass produced NZ Sauvignon Blanc with just a tad over 1000 bottles produced! This has enabled us to craft a slightly different style of Sauvignon Blanc which we think is a very Snazzy, hope you agree.

Layers of gooseberry, passionfruit and crushed herbs jump out of the glass. In the mouth an explosion of lime zest, gooseberry and passionfruit linger with a freshness on the finish

Chardonnay 2020

This is the baby of our consultant wine maker Jenny Dobson, who uses all her wine making experience gained in France, Australia and New Zealand to craft this beautiful chardonnay. Truly a maestro’s creation and made to age gracefully so grab some for your cellar.

Amazing aromas of baking spice, fresh ripe apricots and toasted almonds. A rich velvety texture packed with stonefruit, toasted nuts and a citrus finish. Enjoy this chardonnay in its youth, or cellar carefully for enjoyment over the next 5 years.

Syrah 2016

Symphony Syrah is the ultimate Syrah of each vintage. We carefully make this wine from our oldest vines, ferment in small batches with different yeasts and aged in different cooperages oak barrels. Careful blending of our batches gives us our Symphony as each batch played its part.

Spice and berry fruit abound on the nose with aromas of blueberry and cranberry. Intense dark berry fruit flavours mix with a dark spicy chocolate and soft rounded finish.

Rocky red


Back in 2011 we launched a new easy drinking red named Recession Red as a wine to cheer people up in difficult times. The next vintage became Recovery Red and this was followed by Rocky Red which has stuck ever since!

This is a lovely easy drinking wine made to be enjoyed now with friends or maybe its too good to share! Bursting with berries this is a wine that also has hidden depths of flavour and intrigue that you only find in serious wines. Great with Italian food or your next BBQ.

Riversong Red 2021

This is a fortified wine made in a traditional Portuguese style. Some grapes are left on the vine at normal picking time and allowed to get extra ripe. Half way through the fermentation alcohol is added which basically capture the wine at a unique point in time with the resultant fortified wine being 19% Alcohol.

Amazingly rich and extravagant the wine is an intriguing blend of blackberries, blackcurrants, boysenberries and spices on the finish. The sweetness is balanced by the grapes acidity to ensure it flows down with a satisfying warming sensation. Enjoy a small glass after dinner with some cheeses or perhaps with a dark chocolate dessert. Cellar door exclusive wine

Syrah Rocks


Each swirl of the glass brings another layer of aromatics that add to the enjoyment of our easy drinking Syrah. Purple flower aromas lead to spice and ripe blueberries. Bold, intense and powerful on the palate, the spicy blueberry flavours are wrapped in a mouth filling texture.

Merlin’s Reserve

Merlot 2016

In Authurian legend mysterious Merlin was never too far away from Excalibur. Our Reserve Merlot has always been a mysterious and complex wine with lots of dark plums and spice combining into a magical Merlot.

Classic Blend

2013 or 2014

A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from almost perfect vintages. Still young wines with bags of cellaring potential.



This is our ultimate blend and is only made if the vintage is good enough. Made to showcase the “King of Grapes”, Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is crafted from grapes grown in the best parts of our vineyard and with the lowest number of grapes per vine. 2016 was a great vintage with the grapes picked at optimal ripeness.

Bold, fragrant aromatics of sweet blackcurrants, crushed dried herbs layered with tobacco, cedar and cinnamon bark. On the palate there is sustained flavours of cassis, dark berries, spice, cocoa and graphite. Well knit, lacy tannins dance on the finish that will soften further with careful cellaring. Decant before serving.
