In little more than a decade, Te Motu and Dunleavy Cabernet/Merlot wines have established an international reputation for quality and their robust expression of the unique terroir of Onetangi Valley.

Te Motu Vineyard lies in the Onetangi Valley, sheltered from the north by the ridge which guards Onetangi’s famous beach, and from the west by the rocky outcrop known as Stonyridge.

There are seasonal differences which are an integral part of the charm of and variety of taste experiences which wine can offer, but the recurring themes in Te Motu wines are depth of colour, length and intensity of berryish flavours, smooth ripe tannins, and the complexity of nose and palate added by extended maturation in a range of French and American oak.
