We have approximately 40 hectares (100 acres) of vineyards located in Marlborough, New Zealand’s premier wine growing region. This is also the region with the most sunshine hours per year – an average of about 9 a day! Within Marlborough our vineyards are spread over an 80km (50 mile) range of terroir and this gives us a rich pallet of grapes to paint with. Our main vineyard is at the top end of the Wairau Valley - a significantly cooler area than other parts of the valley closer to the sea and with a day/night temperature variation that can be extremely high. The temperature characteristics of this area aligned with very deep, free-draining and stony soils produce wines that show an interesting range of fruit characters (more citrus than other parts of the valley) and a distinctive mineral note. As for our viticultural practices, wines of great stature can only be made with grapes of supremely high quality, so… - Virtually all vinework (leaf-plucking etc) is carried out by hand. - We Read more »

  • We’re now on episode five of cellar clean-up, today focusing on a handful of White Meritage Blends. I would love to have had additional examples to compare these wines to, but that was not to be. It’s a fascinating, if tiny category of wines. In the face of both the popularity of and obviously suitable sites for red Meritage Blends one could be ... Read More

    51% Semillon, 49% Sauvignon BlancBig melon aromas greet the nose along with well judged oak spice that sets off an apple pie tone to the nose along with gorgeous creamy vanilla notes. Apple pie ala mode all over this nose. Smooth and rich with early oak spice and that great creaminess, in texture and flavor wrapped up in subtle herb and orchard ... Read More

  • I’ve already written up the Grenache based wines I tasted during my time in Santa Barbara, they can be found here: Grenache - The Next Pinot Noir?  so today I am focusing on most of the remaining wines that I tasted while in the region. I’ll save the few Pinots I Tasted for a Pinot round-up, which might surprise some folks. You see I went to San... Read More

  • Today we are faced with an ever expanding selection of wine we might know little about: Red Blends. We know little about them because it’s sometimes hard to know what’s in one. They are in some respects unfortunate victims of their own success. Their proliferation makes them hard to define, and sometimes hard to compare. Though there is however ... Read More

  • Ok, had a good Friday night last week. Opened a bottle of the 06 Zeitgeist Cabernet, made a homemade pasta sauce and watched the new Bond, Quantum of Solace. First off, the feel, the vibe, the motion of the movie all seemed very Jason Bourne-ish. What happened to the good old Bond ? The one moment when I thought we would see the true British... Read More

  • Back in February, Mark posted a summary of Vertical vs. Horizontal wine tasting. It was a clear and concise description of both; so, I'm not going to steal his thunder by repeating anything he wrote. However, I will ask the Snooth team to "link it up," as the one and only Gary Vay-ner-chuk does many times in his daily video blogs. What I will... Read More
