Our Wine

The TIKI is a hand carved Maori treasure which when gifted bestows good fortune and love on others. We craft our wines with that same spirit in mind.

TIKI is the flagship brand and includes three ranges, Estate, Single Vineyard and KORO. Each of these wines are crafted in different styles to cater for the wide range of markets that they are available in.

All of our wines are made by leading New Zealand wine-maker, Evan Ward, who brings nearly 30 years experience to the TIKI brand portfolio

Climatic Influence

Unique to TIKI are the vineyards in the Upper Wairau Valley from which we source the majority our fruit. TIKI is the only New Zealand winery making a number of wines exclusively sourced from this sub-region. The continental climate combined with the terroir of the valley provides an ideal climate for the production of world-class wines that are unique in the world renowned Marlborough region.

The climate allows full flavours to develop through the high daytime temperature while retaining elegant acidity levels through the cooler nights. The result is riper, tropical wine with a defined structure and acidity. TIKI’s key varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir Rosé and Pinot Noir.
