Jackson Estate

The New Zealand Winery in Blenheim in the area Marlborough (South Island) was founded in 1988 by John Stichbury, the first wine was produced in 1991. It is named after Adam Jackson (the maternal great-grandfather of John Stichbury), who grew corn in the Marlborough area in the 19th century. The landmark of the winery shown on the label is a rubber tree planted in 1867 by the great-grandfather and still in existence today. Initially, the wines were vinified out of the house, but since March 2004 in their own, newly built winery. The own vineyards are 73 hectares, grapes of another 40 hectares of contract growers are used. The wines are produced from the varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Top wines are the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay Reserve (expanded in 100% new French oak) and the noble sweet Botrytis Riesling. Numerous national and international awards have been won. From the 2002 vintage, the Sauvignon Blancs are with screw cap bottled.
