Rock Ferry

“Deep and bright in colour, it is finely scented and supple, with deep, ripe plum/spice flavours, hints of dried herbs and nuts, excellent complexity, and a long, tightly structured finish.”
– Michael Cooper on the Trig Hill Pinot Noir, rated 5 stars


Our Story

 

Rockferry Wines

Established in 2005 and named after a landmark site on Marlborough’s Wairau River, Rock Ferry is a family owned organic wine estate with vineyards in Marlborough and Central Otago.  Owned by Tom Hutchison and his wife Fiona, Rock Ferry employs the exceptional talents of winemaker Allan McWilliams who turns his skills to an extensive range of wines. In 2009 Rockferry’s winery was created from a converted fruit packing house at the Orchard Vineyard in Marlborough.  All grapes are hand harvested and hand sorted across a table, mixing the modern stainless steel tanks with the traditional Burgundian puncheons, French cuvees and French oak barriques for ageing.  We take a modern take on tradition, making authentic wine is very important to us, as well as making the best wines we can. We try and pick grapes on ‘fruit’ days in accordance with the biodynamic calendar and find this works with the rhythm of nature and makes better wine. We allow natural yeasts the ability to do their thing wherever possible and use sulfur sparingly, bottling with minimal fining and filtration.

Rockferry philosophy is to make real wines which speak of their home and express the pure distinct flavours from organic estate vineyards in Marlborough and Central Otago. It’s the way we live.”  These are interesting highly enjoyable wines, which are immensely enjoyed by many customers and are some of our best sellers.
