Marlborough

Marlborough
The flagship wine region of New Zealand and perhaps the jewel in the crown – just forty years or so ago, the Marlborough wine region was home to nothing but basic farmland and sleepy market towns. You might have sampled an unmistakable Sauvignon Blanc from the region with grassy green notes of gooseberry and passion fruit, but the almost perfect growing conditions in Marlborough have been heavily tested over the years to find out what grapes work best here - Pinot Gris and Riesling wines are particularly good from this region.

  3. Mission Estate Vineyard Selection Pinot Noir Mission Estate Vineyard Selection Pinot Noir New
    Mission Estate Vineyard Selection Pinot Noir

    Mission's Estate has chosen their very best grapes grown in the Awatere Valley for their Vineyard Selection Pinot Noir. They were selected from a portion of the vineyard that was carefully managed with fruit thinning to encourage optimal ripeness and flavour development.

    It shows good concentration of bright red cherry, forest floor and wild berry aromas, more fruit on the palate with a soft, rich mouthfeel. The wine has a fine structure and really fantastic fruit intensity, supple mouthfeel and a great finish. Drinking really well now but with potential to age well over the next 5-10 years.

    "Garnet-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rime with some bricking. The nose is soft and ethereally full with a broad array of aromatic red berry fruits along with restrained notes of savoury dried herbs, elements of earth and red floral nuances." Raymond Chan
