Fleck

Fleck is true mineral water from New Zealand’s

Southern wilderness.

Its character reflects the remote environment that protects and mineralizes the
water on its underground journey to the natural spring source in Queenstown’s
Gibbston valley.

A splash of Central Otago.

The search for gold near the spring’s source began in the 1860’s. That legacy continues with Fleck, containing minerals even more precious for palatability and well-being.

To enrich your well-being, Fleck has double the mineral levels of most NZ bottled waters. It’s local fare, made in small batches.

Fleck

The Queenstown Spring Source.

Fleck’s source emerges naturally in Queenstown’s Gibbston Valley at an altitude of 285m. Elemental markers in the water indicate that much of it fell as rain or snow in the local mountains above 1000m and took 30 or more years to surface at the spring (mean residence time of 16-50 years).

This lengthy journey, along with a remarkably consistent mineral profile, flow and temperature mark it as a very secure groundwater source. The local geology is dominated by schist rock, which gives the water both it’s signature mineral character and is the key element of Gibbston Valley’s renowned “terroir” – the world’s Southernmost wine appellation.

Enrich your well-being.

Most diets provide less than ideal levels of calcium. Fleck contains optimal levels of calcium and magnesium minerals. Calcium makes bones rigid; comprising 25% of skeletal weight. Along with magnesium, calcium plays a role in most (if not all) of the body’s metabolic processes. Only 25-30% of calcium is absorbed from food, whereas the bioavailability from calcium in water is 50%.

Fleck has double the mineral levels of most NZ bottled waters.

Fleck is high in bicarbonate (HCO3), which has some significant health benefits. It is well-recognised as a buffering agent against acidity. Many studies demonstrate the protective effect of such water in respect of cardiovascular disease. Only water containing at least 250ppm of “dissolved solids” can be labelled as mineral water (NZ Bev. Council & USFDA).

Typical mineral profile in mg/L at source: HCO3 230 | Ca 59 | Mg 14 | NO3 1.0 | Na 7 | Total Dissolved Solids 278 | pH 7.7

It’s local fare.

A Southlander returning to the valley found the water from the spring on his family’s land to be surprisingly refreshing. Fascination with the water became a technical investigation, showing it to be of exceptional character – a rare NZ example of true mineral water. With a friend in boutique food, an idea emerged to create a unique water product to complement the Gibbston Valley’s renowned wine and hospitality … and Fleck was born.
