The latest vintages of Woollaston brand wine (2015) will feature a new label, simple and elegant, using a stylish Roman font against a creamy background to produce a timeless, classical look. The thumbprint on the label is symbolic of the belief that it takes a team of passionate people working together to create something truly special. Each member of the small, close-knit team leaves his or her individual mark on the wine.

With the addition of our winemaker Shane Munn in 2011, it became time to update the label to reflect his craftsmanship and the superior quality of the wine he has created. “The simplicity and organic feel of the new label reflects our philosophy,” states Munn. “Wine labels are a bit like winemaking itself – if you have the right material to start with, less is more.” The label retains the artisanal thumbprint of its predecessor, though on a smaller scale and in tones which echo the rich ochre of the famous Moutere clay soils.

The new label is being released in parallel with the re-opening in October of Woollaston at Mahana Cellar Door.
