'The fruit has good richness, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh, zesty acidity.'
18 / 20 Points - Raymond Chan

  • Established in 1980, Martinborough Vineyard is an icon in New Zealand winemaking history. The first to plant Pinot Noir grapes in the famed region, today Martinborough Vineyard is home to the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the district. Martinborough Vineyard produces the finest Pinot Noir in the New World with a focus on “Handcrafted Excellence in Wine.”

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Martinborough Vineyards are low cropped and hand-tended, yielding approximately 300 tonnes of fruit annually and exclusively grown in the Martinborough appellation using a biological farming method. This method promotes healthy soils which in turn produce healthy vines, more resistant to disease and insects.

    TASTING NOTES

    Martinborough Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc shows perfumed aromas of passionfruit and guava with hints of lemon blossom and dried herbs on the nose. On the palate the ripe fruit character is beautifully balanced against creamy notes from the barrel fermentation portion creating a harmonious and balanced wine with great length and texture.

  • REVIEWS

    'Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour, pale on the rim. The nose has softly fresh aromas of gooseberries and green stonefruits, showing greengages and nectarines along with snow peas and herbs. This has poise and subtle mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has restrained flavours with a rounded, deep core of green stonefruits with gooseberries and herbs. The fruit has good richness, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh, zesty acidity. The fruit forms a light-textured core and line, and the wine carries to a slightly grippy, textural finish. This is a moderately concentrated oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry and green stonefruit flavours with some richness, texture and crispness.'
