About Brightwater Gravels

Family owned and operated for three generations, we are a boutique Nelson winery with a focus on producing balanced, elegant and food friendly wines.
Nestled in between the Wai-iti and the Wairoa rivers, our vines occupy free draining alluvial soils and are blessed with generous sunshine, which in turn produce bright and intense varietals that showcase our family’s passion and terroir with honesty and flair.
You will find our wines are carefully crafted, balanced, and consistently surprise with their complex tones, and polished finish.

Brightwater Gravels
Gewürztraminer 2011
This Gewürztraminer was hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed. It exhibits classical aromas of lychees, mangoes, rosewater and Oriental spice, while an off-dry entry leads through a textural mid-palate to a long finish

Sauvignon Blanc 2014
The characters of this Sauvignon Blanc belie the stony soils of Brightwater, with a fruit-driven nose and an elegant minerality to the palate. Green apple, grapefruit and nectarine aromas are to the fore and the finish is refreshing and long. Fresh while young but will age well over 1-3 years, this is a very satisfying style of Sauvignon Blanc that harmonises well with seafood dishes without making too much of a statement in itself.

Pinot Noir 2012
Red summer fruits, cherries, and sweet spice combine with softly smoky oak in this succulent, approachable wine.Gentle oak tannins and the tasty fruit flavours result in a smooth mouth-filling wine with good length and a softly-warming spicy finish. A perfect accompaniment to red meat, game dishes and mushroom-based sauces.
