Based in Marlborough with a wonderful wine culture surrounding them Zephyr Wines was founded in 1985. The Glover Family converted their farm into a winery and changed the direction of the family business. Their innate ability to work the land as a farming family allowed for quick success with wine too.
They began by planting the classic Sauvignon Blanc as well as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling and the plantings remain similar to this day. They have added Gewurtztraminer into the mix too and have become a renowned aromatic specialist with their Gewurtztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling standing out above all.

The MKlll Zephyr was the step-change for the kiwi saloon- total relaxation & class when touring. The Mark lll Sauvignon Blanc is styled with keen acid, complex fennel and melon flavours, while aromas of cut stalky straw deliver interest. Created originally as an exclusive for wine writer Matthew Juke's UK restaurant 'Bibendum', we now finally have a limited amount for the NZ market.
Hand-picked, whole bunch pressed to barrel, wild fermentation. Marlborough Chardonnay, flint, funk and line; a coiled spring with richness and freaky talent. Our first Chardonnay out of the stable wanting to strut, unbridled pleasure.
A bright dark cherry hue and aromas of raspberries, wild forest berry fruits with high notes of cedar and spice. On the palate, rich and vibrant with primary notes of cherry, currants and wonderfully grainy french oak. Juicy, textural tannins lead on to a succulent lingering finish.
