Chief Winemaker Natalie Christensen’s unique style has seen Yealands achieve global recognition for its outstanding wines, from Pinot Noir to our internationally noted Sauvignon Blanc.
Accolades include a trophy at the 2023 International Wine Challenge – where Natalie herself became the first New Zealander in 15 years to win White Winemaker of the Year, a huge testament to her ability.
This case includes our award winning Yealands Estate Single Block S1 Sauvignon Blanc, Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Albariño and Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir.
Our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours. This wine is a blend of two different blocks on the property – one warmer, sheltered inland block and a coastal block. The wine brings together in harmony the diverse spectrums of the blocks; the warmer site contributing he expressive aromatics and the cooler site giving the mineral backbone and length.
Leave the land better than we found it
At Yealands, we aim to leave the land better than we found it. We achieve this through a wide range of initiatives and on-going projects including developing wetlands, making our own special compost and using natural pest control measures in our vineyard.
