True pioneers in their region, producing elegant, certified-sustainable, estate-grown wines, Mt. Beautiful are uncompromising in quality and faithful to their terroir. Although not as well-known as other areas in New Zealand, North Canterbury is rapidly making a name for itself. According to wine critic Matthew Jukes, the area is the centre of ‘the finest Pinot Noir’ in the southern hemisphere, making Pinots with ‘freshness and minerality’. Their range extends far beyond Pinot however, and we’re delighted to offer wines from across their portfolio, with superb examples showcasing the best that North Canterbury has to offer.

2015 Pinot Gris
£140.40 per 12x75cl case
The Pinot Gris is an invitation to experience the unexpected. Aromatically the wine is floral featuring scents of jasmine and lilac. On the palate, it is full-bodied with luscious ripe pear flavors backed by sensuous texture and crisp, clean, ripe Victoria plums followed by a cream-like finish.
2015 Sauvignon Blanc
£133.20 per 12x75cl case
The Mt Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc pushes the boundaries of the typical New Zealand flavour profile. By highlighting floral aromatics and tropical flavours such as guava, pineapple, kiwi and melon, they tone down the grassiness and gooseberry aromas and bring a creamy mid-palate all the way through to a fresh and bright crispness on the finish
£158.40 per 12x75cl case
With aromatics of ripe red apple and white peach, the Chardonnay has a creamy texture that makes it wonderfully easy and enjoyable to drink. Medium-bodied with underlying notes of roasted almonds and nectarine confit, it finishes clean and crisp with a lovely persistent flint like minerality.
£133.20 per 12x75cl case
This is the Mt Beautiful baby, in that it was the first wine to be released to the public. A ripe wine with lovely off-dry notes of white flowers, pink grapefruit, almonds and green apple. On the palate the citrus notes, green apple and stone fruits such as peach meld together with a zippy minerality. The finish long with a beautiful lingering acidity. This wine is made by blending together two distinct blocks of Riesling from the vineyard.
2015 Pinot Noir
£172.80 per 12x75cl case
As a personal favorite of Mt Beautiful’s owner David Teece, it’s incredibly important for their Pinot Noir to showcase the best aspects of the varietal. Subtlety is the secret inside this wine. It begins with sophisticated floral fragrances of violets and blackberries, while showcasing an elegant medium-weight palate that features ripe blackberry fruit, earthiness and subtle tannins.
We look forward to hearing from you.
