Since planting our pioneering vineyards, over three decades ago – time, tide and fortune have been kind to Jackson Estate and the unparalleled affinity between Marlborough and fine wine has spectacularly been realised.
The acclaim Jackson Estate generates is based on the merit of its soils, mature, cool climate vineyards and wine making style. High sunshine hours maximise fruit concentration; a long, dry growing season enables aroma accumulation and even ripening. Cool nights retain high acidity in the grapes, allowing the wines to age well. The purpose-built winery in Marlborough’s viticultural hub, Blenheim effortlessly handles small parcels of premium grapes which are all harvested, pressed and fermented separately.
Jackson Estate believes in a few very simple principles – the best modern winemaking techniques; a respect for vineyard sites; and unerring pursuit of varietal integrity; and through this a strong, identifiable and much admired style.
