Rippon Wines are of the highest standard. Family owned and biodynamically grown, their wines are made with the utmost care and expertise.
The oldest and probably the most scenic vineyard in Wanaka, Rippon wines are drawn from aged vines in rocky schist soils on the gentle slopes next to Lake Wanaka.
A unique parcel within Rippon, Emma’s Block faces eastward on the lakefront where ancient clay reefs run laterally through fine schist gravels. Emma’s Block is named after the great-great-great grandmother of the current generation of the Mills family, through whom the name entered into the family.
Cellaring is recommended. This wine will age gracefully for 10+ years.
Vegan friendly & certified organic, with no additional sulphites. 16 months on French oak. Unfined and unfiltered.
