Even the most celebrated winemakers will confess that a great wine is created long before their influence. The Farmers Market wines reflect the quality developed within the vineyard by dedicated growers across New Zealand.
This is a classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, displaying a palest straw in the glass it delivers lifted, sweet passionfruit along with African sweetgrass, underscored with typical herbaceous characters. The palate has a burst of ripe fruit, passionfruit and white currant backed with subtle herbaceousness and intriguing white pepper notes. Firm acidity is balanced with the fruit weight for a persistence of flavour.
Intensely aromatic with lychee, nashi pear and rockmelon notes. Bursting with ripe fruit, passionfruit,lychee and Turkish delight. The wine finishes well with the alcohol drying the sugar. Beautifully balanced.
Pale gold with hints of green in colour, the 'Tansley Road' Chardonnay provides aromas of toasty oak, melon and fig, underscored with subtle toffee and hints of butter. A rich, ripe and full bodied style of Chardonnay with a great balance of oak under the abundant melon and tropical fruits that integrate well with the creamy notes. This is Gisborne chardonnay through and through.
Typical Merlot nose, lifted black fruits, plum with a hint of leather and oak. Fruit driven style, with blackcurrant, black cherry, chocolate & a hint of spice.
