Description

Auntsfield Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Auntsfield Estate Sauvignon Blanc has intense and pure aromas of fresh nectarine and peach skin are complimented by notes of passionfruit, ripe citrus tropical fruit and crushed herbs. This wine displays intense ripe fruit flavours of nectarine and white peach, with citrus notes of ripe grapefruit and mandarin peel. The palate has intense concentration and generous weight, balanced by an underlying minerality and tight structure to shape a wine with lively tension and textural balance

Auntsfield don’t make Sauvignon like everyone else in Marlborough. The point here is expressing the mineral texture of this old site, including use of a bit of old oak and months of lees ageing and stirring. The result is released later, will live longer and speaks more about mouthfeel, lemon pith texture and fine, chalky minerality.

Auntsfield was bought by the Cowleys in the early 90’s when it was still an unplanted cattle farm. However, when they researched the property they discovered it had actually produced wine from 1873 through to 1925 which made it the first commercial winery in Marlborough planted some 100 years before anywhere else!

David Herd was a man with imagination. In 1854 he arrived in New Zealand and looked at the land he was farming. While everyone around him was looking around and thinking “sheep” he looked at it and thought “wine”. With this vision he became Marlborough’s founding winemaker. This is now a region famed throughout the world for it’s wine, but it was Herd who first saw that potential. He decided that the landscape, the soil and the weather were all perfect for wine. Hidden away on the vineyard is Herd’s original wine cellar. The place he created and stored his first wines. Which you can see on their logo.

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Mezzacorona Castel Firmian Pinot Grigio 2020

Great value Pinot Grigio with typical ground almond flavour and a touch of spritz. The wine is more vinous than most with a suggestion of orchard fruits (apples, green plums) and the sort of weight that can handle most fish dishes.

Quincy Ballandors

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.
