Vines are grown to six hectares of Horotiu sandy loam over free draining river shingle, planted on a gentle north facing slope overlooking the Waikato River. A local fire break is used as a road frequented by harvesters motoring around the vineyard. Following the discard of any unwanted fruit, grapes are destemmed and gently pressed, juices are cool fermented to retain as much varietal flavour and aroma as possible. Yeasts are selected for their ability to enhance the provenance of a special vineyard. A mid winter bottling allows development of palate weight while preserving intense fruit character and ripe, crisp acidity.
The felicitous vines of Mystery Creek are planted to one of the earliest precincts of Marlborough viticulture. A single Wairau Valley vineyard in the highly regarded Raupara subregion, superlative winegrowing terrains which pioneered Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and brought New Zealand to the world of wine. The auspicious mesoclimes at Mystery Creek yield harvests of extraordinary quality fruit, yielding a pungent wine of purity, balance and style.
Light straw, lemon hues. Vibrant currant leaf and gooseberry aromas, herbaceousness and green vegetable, ripe citrus notes. A full flavoured, medium bodied palate, layered with an adundance of currant and gooseberry flavours, finely balanced acids and ripe fruit characters, all the way to a clean lingering finish. Perfect match to whiting fillets or brewed mussels.

Mystery Creek is a progressive, niche producer of premiere New Zealand wines operating from some of the choicest soils Marlborough has on offer

Vines are planted to Horotiu sandy loam over free draining river shingle, sited on a gentle north facing slope overlooking the Waikato River. The original Chardonnay grapes were planted in 1990 and sold on contract. The winery itself was constructed in 1999 and the first vintage harvested in 2000. More recently Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah have been planted with the first harvest produced in 2005.

 Mystery Creek

Mystery Creek rose from obscurity in 2001 when it was awarded Gold Medal in the Liquorland Top 100 with it's inaugural vintage Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2000. The same wine received a Silver Medal in the Royal Easter Show and a Bronze Medal in the Air New Zealand Wine Awards. The following year, the estate's Reserve Chardonnay 2001 was awarded a Silver Medal in the Liquorland Top 100. The following year, the subsequent vintage claimed Silver Medal at the Liquorland Top 100.

Mystery Creek also craft the esoteric varietals rather well, the 2007 Gewurztraminer received a nomination for Best of the Best from Peter Saunders in the NZ Food & Beverage magazine. Mystery Creek 2007 Pinot Gris and the Mystery Creek 2007 Riesling, also achieved Bronze Medal status at the Royal New Zealand Show. The continuing success across the entire range in competitions and in the export and local markets, firmly places Mystery Creek Wines as the premier Waikato winery.
