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 Bright crimson.
  • Aroma/Bouquet Cherries and ripe brambly fruits, with a light savoury and earthy background.
  • Palate Soft, full and fruity, with ripe cherry/berry flavours, some defining oak tannin structure and a generous weight.
  • Cellaring Will reward careful cellaring, through the development of bottle age complexities. However, the wine is already drinking well, and should be at peak by early 2016.
  • Suggested Foods A great match with asian and wild duck, rare lamb and venison, char-grilled chicken or tuna.
  • Serve Cool room temperature.
