The Lake Road journey began with the first vines planted in 1975. Settled on the world’s eastern edge in New Zealand, our vines are the first to see the light of each new day.

As well as producing wines from our own vineyards, Lake Road works with a small number of artisan growers and producers throughout New Zealand. Our brief is a simple one - create iconic wines, that capture the abundant sunshine and the taste of the land we call home.

Lake Road Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2023

93 Points | ★★★★★

Pristine and intensely aromatic, the wine shows Granny Smith apple, lemon zest, apricot and jasmine aromas, followed by a wonderfully flavoursome offering bright fruit flavours with juicy acidity, making it instantly appealing.

Lake Road Pinot Gris Gisborne 2021

93 POINTS | ★★★★★

It's splendidly fruited and fragrant on the nose with golden peach, ripe pear, rockmelon and rich floral aromas. The palate delivers excellent weight and fruit intensity beautifully supported by supple mouthfeel and juicy acidity, making it delightfully drinkable.

Lake Road Reserve Chardonnay Gisborne 2022

92 POINTS | Premium

Ripe, fruity, varietal and enticing bouquet with aromas of buttered peach and baked apple, fresh and roasted cashew nut, burnt butter, nectarine and barrel spices. Near full-bodied as the wine touches the palate, flavours mirror the bouquet with medium acidity, a satin cream mouthfeel and fine tannins. Well made, dry and ready for drinking from 2023 through 2028.
