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.

  • Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Fall Harvest 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I had to review it again. Still just about my all time favorite. Those Kiwis can produce some stellar sauv blanc! Pale lemon in the glass. Highly aromatic as usual. Powerful flavor intensity. Crisp and elegant. Peach, pineapple, melon, orange mix well with the grassy, herbal and mineral tones. Such a nice, harmonious balance. Long linge... Read More

  • I just scored a bottle of 1990 Martinborough Vineyard Pinot from my local and am curious as to what to pair with it. Have a feeling that it might be a little past it but it's a great learning opportunity and might even still be good. By coincidence I have a tasting with their winemaker Paul Mason next week so will ask his thoughts on it too. In ... Read More
