New Zealand has already proven it can make world-class wines from French-related varieties as Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. This selection invites you to travel across varieties from Spain, Austria and Georgia that have found a place in Marlborough.
Presented in our Herzog wooden case, this collection includes:
Tempranillo, meaning 'little early one' refers to it being one of Spain's early ripener and has been said to be Spain's answer to Cabernet Sauvignon. Blossoming in Marlborough this variety produces bright, lively, fruit driven wines with just the right balance between tannins and acidity. A wonderfully elegant wine.
Austria's most widely planted variety has found its way to Marlborough, nestled on the banks of the Wairau River. Hans was the first to plant this variety back in 2003 and we have been singing its praises ever since. Complex, luscious, rich in dark fruit flavours. Our own black forest gateau as we like to call it.
One of the oldest known varieties from the birth place of wine - Georgia. Hans is the only producer in New Zealand to produce this wine and at only 225 bottles produced, from one barrel, it is one of our rarest nectars. Rich in dark fruit with savoury flavours with a great backbone of high acidity and tannins for longevity.
