Leading New Zealand wine brand celebrates a new beginning

Leading New Zealand wine brand celebrates a new beginning


Matariki is back in business and celebrating its new beginning with the release of Quintology 2009, the winery’s flagship red and the Les Filles range of premium wines.


Matariki, one of New Zealand’s most prestigious wine brands has formally announced its return to market with the launch of its ultra-premium 2009 wines.

Now under the ownership of Taurus Wine Group Limited, the wines remain under the stewardship of John O’Connor and the watchful eye of the mother and her six daughters that form the visible stars in the Matariki constellation, appropriately re-appearing in the night sky on June 28 heralding the Maori New Year.

Matariki is marking its new beginning with the release of its flagship red blend, Quintology and single varietal range Les Filles (The Daughters), all from the 2009 vintage.

Launching the wines is particularly satisfying for John, the O’Connor family and the Matariki team.

“The last two years have been extremely difficult after investors failed to fulfil their partnership agreement and the old company was placed in receivership in 2012. With adversity comes strength and our passion remains to produce world-class red wine that will continue in the Matariki tradition and be loved by drinkers world-wide.

“We have some great wines and vintages maturing and will continue to try and let these develop before releasing into the market. Exporting to China remains our focus and over the last few months we have sent six containers of ultra-premium red wine there,” says John.

Matariki wines are available online at www.matarikiwines.co.nz
