Wine of Julicher Estate

Julicher Estate is a family-owned boutique Martinborough winery focusing on the production of prestige quality wines with distinctive fruit flavours. Julicher wines are estate grown on their 20 hectares of vineyards on the Te Muna Terraces. ‘Te Muna’ means ‘secret place’.

The soils of Te Muna Terraces are free-draining alluvial gravel, which are rich in minerals making it ideal for growing grapes. The climate is an extension of Martinborough and similar to Burgundy, being only slightly cooler due to higher altitude, but with long cool summers and low rainfall providing the optimum long ripening conditions for grapes.
