Its 201kms from the Hanmer Fuel stop, through Molesworth over Taylors Pass and to the BP in Bleinheim. (google maps) So you should be fine.
If you’re getting tight, instead of Taylors Pass go to the end of the road and hang a right into Southfuel in Seddon , thats only 187kms
You leave Molesworth station well before the end of the road and as you say you are in the wine belt for quite a while so I think you are right about finding some gas if you got stuck. Good excuse for a tasting perhaps??

Or carry a one litre fuel bottle for peace of mind.
Its a gravel road. Not that challenging really but epically scenic especially with a bit of snow about.
