Wine and friends go hand-in-hand. So we decided to bring some of our friends' most delicious wines to New Zealand!
Keller's wines are some of the most sought after, and difficult to get, wines on the market today. Jancis Robinson has described his Rieslings as the "Montrachets of Germany". Keller pays just as much attention and puts just as much love into his everyday wines as he does to his Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru) bottlings.
Julian, coming from a family with winemaking background dating as far back as 1337, started his own project in 2010. His vineyards have grown to some 5 hectares with many vines being more than 100 years old, producing unique wines with strong characters, and great ageing potential. Or, as Jancis Robinson writes, “There is general consensus in the informed wine world that the former star pupil (Julian Haart) of Klaus-Peter Keller is one of the greatest talents of the German wine industry in the last 20 years.”
Schubert's principle is to craft wines of uncompromising quality, that would stand out alongside the finest in the world. The Wairarapa offers an unique blend of topography, geology, and climate to produce world class Burgundian style Pinot Noir. This was the reason for us to set up our vineyard in Martinborough where New Zealand’s Pinot Noir history began in 1883.
For us, the most exciting thing about wine is its plentifulness and diversity. Varieties, Terroirs, Production Techniques and Traditions are unique to every single bottle, and here at Schubert & Friends, we aspire to bring this diversity to New Zealand by introducing you to our close friends and winery colleagues from all over the world.
