Marlborough Chardonnay, flint, funk and line; a coiled spring with richness and freaky talent. Zephyr's first Chardonnay out of the stable wanting to strut, unbridled pleasure.
The Glover family were one of the first to plant grapes on their farm in Marlborough's Dillon's Point sub-region in 1988. Nineteen years later, led by eldest son Ben, the family launched Zephyr, a range of single vineyard wines from the farm. The name Zephyr means ‘a gentle breeze' - inspired by the prevailing wind that moderates their vineyards. It's also the name of the best car released by the Ford Motor Company.
Zephyr wines are made in Ben's trademark expressive style, elegant with personality. Ben has spent more than two decades making wine for some of New Zealand's top brands, earning a reputation as one of the most talented and respected winemakers in the business.
