Exclusive Vertical Collections - Italian wines from Marlborough

What Herzog has in common with the greatest Italian wine producers, besides a superior microclimate and terroir, is the philosophy for higher density planting and lower yields for complex, powerful and long-lived wines.. Top producers are using only their own grapes to have total control over the quality of the fruit and practice an artisan approach to wine growing.  They show exceptional vinivication skills knowing that a natural and non-interventionist winemaking is key.

Take a look at our handcrafted Italian collections below:

‘Secret of Marlborough’ Montepulciano 2015.

A wine that stands the test of time…


96 Points

“Big, rich, juicy, almost cuddly Montepulciano with dried fruit, cassis, ripe plum, chocolate, mocha and spicy oak flavours. Deliciously drinkable now but with development potential. The best New Zealand grown Montepulciano I've tasted.” 

Bob Campbell, The Real Review 2020

Montepulciano has always held a special place in Hans’ heart, as the first person to plant this varietal in Marlborough back in 1996, you can imagine there were a lot of eyes on how this would play out. Will this be successful in a region dominated by Sauvignon Blanc? Hans was adamant that his vineyard, set in one of the hottest plots in Marlborough, could ripen this varietal easily. Twenty four years later and this powerhouse has stood the test of time and has received some admiration along the way. One of our most famous wines worldwide and once tasted, you can see why.

When ordering 12 bottles of our Montepulciano 2015 they will be exclusively showcased in a Herzog wooden case (like those traditionally used by famous producers across the globe), with 10% discount already included.

Available to domestic customers only.

The Senior Italian Collection.

First ever release…

Hans has always put an allocation of each vintage into his library, like a time capsule. From time to time he takes these out from their horizontal slumber to see how they have developed, each time showing more complex nuances and impressions. Available only through our Gourmet Restaurant does Hans share these rare nectars. However we have managed to persuade him to put together a vertical, one so exclusive that it has never been put together before… Introducing our Italian Library Collection. This collection allows you to try side by side our current vintage with their aged counterpart, taste for yourself how well these wines have aged.


Barbera 2013 & 2015, Nebbiolo 2010 & 2013, Montepulciano 2009 & 2015

With only extremely low quantities this collection will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Who knows how long it will be available for… So it may be worth to act fast!
