Glazebrook wines pay homage to Garry Glazebrook, the landowner who founded the original company in 1981.
Today, Glazebrook is all about location, location, location. It is an amalgamation of our unique cool coastal climate, growing season, harvest and winemaking to create an expression of harmonious perfection. The coordinates 041°S 174°E represent where these elements collide to create our award-winning wine.
They come together here in this incredible place enabling our specialist winemaking team to create delicious and exciting wines ready for sharing with friends.
Our vision is to connect others to our special place through the beauty and magic captured in our Glazebrook wines.
Grown and crafted where stars align, Glazebrook is a destination found in every glass.
New Zealand is a world-renowned wine growing region with a temperate maritime climate and free-draining alluvial soils.
Coupled with a long growing season, this provides excellent conditions for maximum flavour development.
Cool nights and warm days retain acidity which leads to fresh and vibrant fruit character that is highly characteristic of sort after New Zealand styles.
Located at the top of the South Island, Marlborough has perfect conditions for producing cool climate styles.
Marlborough is one of New Zealand’s sunniest and driest places with a long growing season and strong diurnal variation creating wines with high acidity to balance the full flavour and intense varietal characters.
Our Cable Station Road vineyard is an area of outstanding natural beauty located in the Awatere Valley of Marlborough, New Zealand with sustainable winegrowing practices at the core of our grape-growing.
The ripening process here is unrivalled for Sauvignon Blanc with long, uninterrupted sunshine by day and cool, crisp air under dazzling stars by night. Here at 041°S 174°E, the air is whistle clean and the water is crystal clear. The undulating land has views of snow-capped mountains and lies next to New Zealand’s only salt-lake, making this mineral influenced, cool climate wine balanced with a softness unique to Glazebrook.
The unspoiled soils are free-draining and overlay a gravely subsoil, all within sight of the wild Pacific Ocean. Invigorating winds travel off the waves keeping the vines bright and fruit immaculate. These cooling conditions keep our grape berries small and harvest yield naturally low which creates a unique intensity and purity of fruit flavour. The sheer rawness of the landscape is translated into a zesty lemon, lime and grapefruit fanfare, mouth-watering passionfruit and juicy tropical fruit notes with herbal undertones.
Glazebrook wines are stylish and elegant, made to complement your lifestyle and share with friends.
Our exceptionally experienced winemaking team combines the result of wild elements, unique land attributes and climate from this single vineyard to deliver extraordinary flavour and a destination in every glass.
