Smith & Sheth is the new powerhouse wine brand made up primarily of Steve Smith MW, of Craggy Range fame and Brian Sheth, an American environmentalist, who also happens to be very wealthy. Needless to say, no expense is spared on these wines. The Cru Mangatahi Chardonnay is produced exclusively from a single vineyard west of Hastings. Hand-picked Mendoza fruit off 25+ year old vines was fermented and aged in 50% new French oak for 10 months. This is a wine of serious complexity and length and will age gracefully for 5 years and beyond. Best enjoyed with good company and good food.


Vibrant grapefruit and tropical fruit, with cashew nut and saline complexities.


Textural and full, with balancing acid giving the rich creamy palate structure and length. Ripe tropical fruit accentuated by roasted nut and burnt butter notes – flavours that will become more rounded and creamy with further aging.
