This is the ultimate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, capturing the aromatics and fruit intensity of New Zealand, but with the structure and mouthfeel of a good Sancerre.

The vineyard is in the Southern Valleys part of Marlborough, whose fine clay soils make it great Pinot Noir country. 

However what makes this wine taste the way it does, is a faultline of decomposed greywacke rock that runs right through the vineyard. This gives the grapes an extra dimension of flavour and structure that you don’t get in other Marlborough wines.

So you get the classic herbaceous, nettle-y flavours of a good NZ Sauvignon, but it has a gorgeous purity and texture thanks to these special soils.

Auntsfield sell 90% of this wine into good restaurants all over the world - the rest they sell into fine wine bottle shops. So you’re in good company when you try this wine!

When the Cowley family bought a piece of Marlborough land, now known as Auntsfield Estate, in the late 1990s, they were blissfully unaware of the history they were about to stumble upon.

Really lovely, much more interesting layers than is typical of this region. Purchased to enjoy with a friend who only drinks NZ Sav Blanc from Marlborough (sigh) so I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't boring!
