The ONE – the best Syrah in New Zealand!

Every winegrower hopes and dreams at the start of every season that their grapes will be delicious and make wonderful wine… maybe even a double gold double champion wine! Please email any queries to


We knew on harvest day 2022. One grape exploded in our mouths like a taste symphony! It was all there!

For the first time in 17 years, we decided to name this syrah. Knowing that this is the wine we have always dreamed about, and the best we have ever produced we decided to name it The ONE.

The ONE is a double gold double champion wine, winning the best wine of any varietal in Auckland (up against 370 other top wines), and the best syrah in New Zealand in the Aotearoa Regional Wine Competition

All of this, and The ONE hasn’t even been in the bottle for a year yet! This wine will reward proper cellaring.

Pre release sales of The ONE have now closed.

Harvest 2021

Our delicious fruit has been carefully harvested and crushed.

25 brix, perfect ph and lovely acid means the 2021 Owhanake Syrah will be one to watch out for!

Thank you to the viticulture students at Waiheke High School and to Dayne for his excellent work in the vines this year.

Superb 2021 Syrah

Our 2021 Syrah has enjoyed a long, warm, dry summer with occasional rain: perfect! Free from pressure, we were able to leave the fruit on the vines until 25 Brix, which means we have fabulous dark red fruit and nice white pepper spice flavours.

Our Cellar Door is now closed for tastings until covid-19 has passed

We feel that closing our popular Saturday cellar door is the only realistic and sensible move until the covid-19 pandemic is past us. Please email if you would like to purchase wine. You can still buy wine online
