“Radburnd Cellars is a dream come true for me – and I don’t say that lightly. It’s incredibly invigorating to create a winery with a clean slate so we’re able to completely focus on making small parcels of the absolute best wines we can – and that’s something that I have wanted to do for a very long time.” – Kate Radburnd, Winemaker & Owner…

She’s a true legend of New Zealand wine, but Kate would be the first to say her successes are made possible by the people around her. At Radburnd Cellars she’s gathered a small team utterly focused on quality. Everyone gets stuck in and does whatever needs to be done during vintage. Read more about Kate and her team HERE

Radburnd Cellars make small parcels of Chardonnay, Syrah and Merlot Cabernet. All hand-picked, hand sorted and aged in barrel. All three 2018 vintage wines are now available from in cases of 3 or 6, or you can mix and match your own by the bottle.

Radburnd Cellars Chardonnay 2018
Hawke’s Bay 

Elegant and refined with a backbone of pristine fruit and balanced acidity, this finely concentrated Chardonnay has a lovely freshness and finesse and will become more complex as it evolves over time. It is drinking well now, and will develop beautifully over 5-7 years.

Radburnd Cellars Syrah 2018
Hawke’s Bay 

Beautifully fragrant and elegant, this Syrah exhibits stunning fruit purity combined with layers of complexity, silky texture and a backbone of fine tannins allowing the wine to age for 5-7 years and beyond.

Radburnd Cellars Merlot Cabernet 2018
Hawke’s Bay 

Powerful, restrained and elegant, this blend exhibits lifted aromatics and berry fruits, revealing layers of complexity that will slowly unfold. Highly structured with balanced acidity and tannin, this wine will continue to evolve for the next decade.
