These are wines that provide focus and clarity on Marlborough's fast-emerging sub-regions. Certainly regional and sometimes vineyard-specific, these wines highlight the attributes of individual sites and districts and their ensuing characteristics in the finished wines.

The Wairau Valley Sub-Region

  • Colour/Appearance Pale, lemon-straw.
  • Aroma/Bouquet Fresh apples, lemon and lime, citrus flower and light stone-fruit.
  • Palate Medium bodied wine with apricot, zingy citrus and crisp apple flavours, some lemon-honey and a fresh finish.
  • Cellaring Will reward careful cellaring, through the development of bottle age complexities. However, the wine is already drinking well.
  • Suggested Foods This wine is excellent as an aperitif before a meal, but also able to partner a wide range of food, from crayfish and scallops through to pork and spicy foods.
  • Serve Chilled.
