Winemaker Notes

"This tight, pungent Sauvignon has richness and stays cool, even as the acidity in the finish seems to bleed green. Chill it for oysters."

Cairnbrae, New Zealand
Cairnbrae Vineyards is a family owned and operated boutique winery producing quality white wines in the favoured Rapaura district of Marlborough, New Zealand, neighbouring the well known Cloudy Bay and Corbans Stoneleigh vineyards.

The 45 acre vineyard was established in 1980, one of the earliest in the district. The terrain is flat with slight undulations, the deep river gravel subsoil with varying depths of fertile river silt of top, provides perfect drainage, conducive to the successful growing of grapes. The Cairnbrae Vineyard, situated on Jacksons Road, is traditionally one of the earliest vineyards to be harvested in Marlborough.

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
