Goldwater Estate is an esteemed winery which pioneered winemaking on Waiheke Island in 1978, and is still one of its leading winemakers with vintages commanding top dollars. As a non-drinker, my impressions of Goldwater Estate is based on the stunning views across Putiki Bay from its vantage point.
The grounds have such a tranquil atmosphere.
Now the important food part, – Goldwater Estate does a glorious platter lunch. Lunch consisted of a seafood platter (salmon with beans, mussels on potato rosti squares and prawns with a creamy potato salad) and a meat platter (prosciutto with insalata caprese, beef meatballs with grilled aubergines and smoked chicken breast on a bed of roasted pumpkin and rocket salad). Stunning!
Dessert was coffee nut cake, and chocolate truffles.
