Martinborough is a small town and wine region within the Wairarapa district of New Zealand’s North Island. It’s located a small distance from the capital city of Wellington, and noted for its premium boutique wineries. 
 
The region benefits from free-draining alluvial soils, long sunny days, cool nights and minimal rainfall, which create the perfect conditions for well balanced, character-driven grapes. Pinot Noir is the standout varietal, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer also grown.

  • Martinus Estate Pinot Noir Martinborough 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Strong complex nose with vanilla, parsley, pepper, nutmeg, cherry, plum, cedar and grass at different times over two hours. Dark fruit dominates the palate with tones of blackberry, black cherry, currant, and plum. Refreshing, smooth finish with oaky aftertaste. Dries nicely mid-trip. Read More

  • Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Fall Harvest 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Solid summer wine. Pale yellow in color with green hues. Aromas of grapefruit with some mineral notes. The taste is flavorful, well-balanced and spicy. There is a hint of lemon on the palate and green apple. The finish is long, clean and zingy with a bit sour apple. Read More
