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 (John Stichbury's maternal great-grandfather), who grew crops in the Marlborough area in the 19th century. The symbol 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, but since March 2004 they have been vinified in their own newly built winery. The company's own vineyards amount to 73 hectares, grapes from another 40 hectares are used by contract winemakers. The wines are produced from the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc varieties. Top wines are the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay Reserve (made from 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 will also be available screw cap bottled.
