Unison Vineyard is recognised internationally as an elite wine producer. This distinction was only possible due to dedication to the creation of consistently fine red wines.
These results are achieved by:
- Enthusiasm and commitment from the professional winemaker team
- Personal quality control from the vineyard through to the bottled wine
- Professional vineyard/cellar-management to its highest standards
- Terroir: Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing District
- The favourable climate of Hawke's Bay
Unison Vineyard is the only NZ winery included in a list of 28 up-and-coming producers in the world, "… whose success seems most obvious to me at the beginning of the 21st century …" (Jancis Robinson, Concise Wine Companion)
Unison is a red wine specialist. Two blends of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are produced, both so rich, warm and densely packed that they rank among the most distinctive and consistently rewarding reds in Hawke’s Bay. "… From the start Unison has stood out for its ripeness, depth and harmony …" (Michael Cooper, NZ Wine Atlas 2002)
"… Among the other Bordeaux blends that stand out in a crowd … the Gravels’ smallest and most consistent producer … the wines produced by Unison are stunners …" (Warren Barton, The Dominion May 2002)
"… The red wine mecca: The cult winery of Hawke's Bay is undoubtedly Unison Vineyard …" (Charles Gill, Daily News, Feb 2002)
"… These are seriously good wines …" (Unison & Selection 1998) (James Halliday, Wine Companion 2001)
As we are fist and foremost viticulturalists and winemakers we don't hunt around for reviews. We actually have to thank the team of our Friends of Unison who update us kindly with reviews from all these different sources. Many thanks to the loyal "team"!
