Sam Harrop Wine
Featured in the current Cellar Offering
Waiheke is just 12 miles wide from east to west and varies between 0.4 to 6 miles north to south, with 83 miles of coastline and hilly terrain. This idyllic spot is the place that Sam Harrop calls home. Sam is based in Waiheke much of the year with his wife Karlie and their two small boys and makes his own wines on the island. His wines are made with a thoughtful attention to detail and no holds barred approach. The results are complex yet elegant wines with a sense of place, well balanced with relatively low alcohol levels at 12 to 12.5%. As well as being an accomplished international winemaker, judge, author and Master of Wine, Sam is an extremely proud New Zealander and is devoted to challenging and promoting others as part of the Fine Wines of New Zealand program.
