Dyed-in-the-Wool is a local New Zealand saying that means unchangeable and stubborn. The name of the wine was solidified one afternoon while eating lunch with the owner, his wife and their son in law. As you may or may not know, New Zealand is home to 60 million sheep and about 4 million people. There are a number of mountainsides that are often seen covered with grazing goats and sheep. The vineyard estate where Dyed-in-the-Wool is created backs up to one of these hills. As we ate our lunch, the large number of sheep ate lunch with us on the hillside and even came down to where we were sitting. The spectacle led to a discussion of the large number of sheep in New Zealand and eventually to the colloquial saying, Dyed-in-the-Wool or Unchangeable.

Dyed-in-the-Wool is created with unchangeable philosophies. The philosophy of our people and the winemaker is to create the best possible wine each and every vintage. We do nothing that could sacrifice the quality of our wines. That is why the product we create for ourselves, and our customers to enjoy, is unchangeable vintage to vintage. Bon appetite!!! - Winemaker's Notes

Pale straw in color, the wine has an attractive nose with a lifted bouquet of ripe gooseberries, supported by aromas of freshly cut grass and tropical fruits. On the palate the classical Marlborough flavors are concentrated and intense. The palate is richly textured, vibrant and tightly knit reflecting the superior quality of the estate grown grapes and a meticulous approach to winemaking.
