Harvested by hand, in the coolness of the evening, at optimal ripeness. The wine is dry and if lightly chilled, a delicious red wine that is not the heavy.
The perfect companion for light red meats, small game and soft ripened cheeses.
Also great with fish, such as tuna, when chilled.

Marlborough Valley Wines is centrally located in the Wairau Valley in New Zealand’s Marlborough. The winery uses grapes from carefully selected vineyards in Marlborough to make wines with pure fruit in a recognizable Marlborough style. The wines offer great value for money every year.

Marlborough is of course most famous for its Sauvignon Blancs. The unique style of the region is difficult to copy in other parts of the world because of its special characteristics. The combination of well-draining soils, plenty of sunshine and a large temperature difference between day and night give the wines their characteristic, expressive character with pronounced notes of tropical fruit.

The winery takes great care in leaf management and the correct yields in the vineyard. This keeps the vines healthy and disease free. As a result, the fruit is always of high quality.

The winery makes the popular line Bishop’s Leap, which refers to the Maori legend of a bishop from Marlborough. The bishop was chased by Maori and therefore jumped high from a rock in the Wairau River, which today is so important as a source of life for the many vines in the area. Both the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in this line stand out for their pure fruit profile and pleasant freshness.
