We are proud that in October 2008 we received our Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ) Accredited Vineyard accreditation. This involved a year-long review process by an independent auditor and certifies that we adhere to a strict code of farming and wine making practices. Our commitment to sustainability is a cornerstone of our company philosophy and we look forward to continuing to use environmental best practices in all aspects of our business.

2007 Home Creek Pinot Noir

Cuisine Magazine High 4 Stars "Northfield Home Creek Pinot Noir topped the four-star ratings, narrowly missing 5 Stars. The winery that straddles the Pacific has crafted a rich, taste mosaic of violets, dried herbs and black cherries. Try it alongside penne pasta with shredded duck." (download review)

Wine Enthusiast 90 points (full review coming out in July 2009).

2006 Home Creek Pinot Noir

Air New Zealand Business/First Selection "New Zealand Pinot Noirs express their region and site in a wonderfully distinctive manner. Northfield Home Creek has pronounced aromas of ripe strawberry and black current with notes of earth and spice and supple tannins."

Robert Parker Wine Advocate 88+ points "New Zealand's 2006 Pinot Noirs were superior to even the most feted NZ icons of previous years, which can only be positive for the future."

Whitley on Wine 92 points "One of the more floral pinots you are likely to encounter, the Northfield Home Creek is an exemplary expression of this grape variety as it is produced in the New World. Intense aromas of violets and spice are followed on the palate by a rich, deep raspberry-blackberry fruited nuance, and high-toned strawberry. Well balanced (only 13.4% alcohol), with depth, complexity and a sensuous finish. A steal at the price."

New Zealand Royal Easter Wine Show Bronze Medal.

2007 Frog Rock Chardonnay

Whitley on Wine 91 points "One of the best kept secrets of New Zealand wine is the exceptional potential of the Chardonnay grape. Northfield's Frog Rock Chardonnay is a first-rate effort that delivers a gorgeous lemon-cream aroma, followed by ripe yellow fruits, hints of minerality and firm acidity. It finishes on a toasty note, complemented by sweet brown spices."

New Zealand International Wine Show Silver Medal.

Romeo Bragato Wine Awards Bronze Medal.

Winestate Magazine 3.5 Stars "Upfront style, weighty, peachy, spicy and creamy, with a seasoning of sweet oak, some mealy complexity and a rounded finish. Enjoyed by all judges."

2007 Waipara Valley Riesling

Wine Enthusiast 88 points "Waipara is becoming better known for its Rieslings, thanks to wines like this one. Bold pineapple and kumquat aromas and flavors come across as broad and off-dry without being flabby or fat, then end with a flourish of baking spices and a hint of cracked pepper. Drink now thru 2015." (download review)

Winestate Magazine 3.5 Stars "Tangy with some intensity of lemon/line flavour, woven with tight minerally acidity. Still youthful."

2007 Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon

Wine Enthusiast 86 points "Like many New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, this one carries a touch of red bell pepper, adding a slightly vegetal aspect to its pineapple and gooseberry fruit. Finishes admirably dry, with some chalky overtones." (download review)

Winestate Magazine 3 Stars "Mouthfilling blend of Sauvignon Blanc (75%) and Semillon (25%) handled entirely in stainless steel tanks. Shows good fruit intensity, with some buttery, leesy complexity and a dry finish."
