New Zealand’s flagship wine region which, in combination with Sauvignon Blanc, put the country on the international wine stage. Much more than just Sauvignon though, Marlborough offers increasing depth in both varieties and terroir.
The auspicious combination of a cool yet high sunshine climate, low rainfall and free-draining, moderately fertile soil produces uniquely vivid wines across a wide range of varieties and styles.
"If I had to choose one New Zealand region whose Pinot Noir I would drink for the rest of my life, I think it would actually be Marlborough. This is, of course, a place that made its name from Sauvignon Blanc, but there is something about the thought of a good Marlborough Pinot Noir that makes my stomach do a little twist. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a luminous quality, and the Pinot Noir is the same." Victoria Moore, The Telegraph
