    Winemaker Notes

    Lively and refreshing, with intense gooseberry, grapefruit and kiwi fruit on the nose and palate. Explodes with flavor - the essence of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

    Color: Pale straw / green hints Bouquet: Ripe tropical fruit especially passion fruit and melon. An extra hint of riverstone shows through Palate: Ripe flavours continue through. A subtle creamy note contributes richness and interest. The taught acid structure provides keen focus to the palate and balances the ripe tropical fruit flavours. The finish is powerful and reminiscent of passion fruit and melon.

    At Spy Valley, emphasis on viticultural excellence creates wines that capture the essence of the environment and are classically Marlborough. Owning all our vineyards ensures total control of the winemaking process, true single vineyard estate production. Youthful, exuberant wines bursting with fruit flavour and aroma are crafted using modern winemaking techniques by our winemaker Ant Mackenzie, one of New Zealand's most experienced and a true expert at capturing the essence of the season.

    Spy Valley
    The brand name Spy Valley is derived from the presence of a satellite communications monitoring station within a few kilometers of the winery. Situated on the sunny southern side of Marlborough's Wairau Valley, nestled on the terraces of the Omaka River are the vineyards of Johnson Estate. Established in 1993 by the Johnson family, Johnson Estate was one of the pioneering vineyard companies in the Marlborough sub-region and remains family-owned. Eight varieties of grapes grow over 380 acres of free-draining, stony soils producing exceptional fruit for Spy Valley Wines. In ten years, production has risen to place Spy Valley as one of Marlborough's leading family-owned companies. Youthful and exuberant wines are crafted using modern winemaking techniques by winemaker Paul Bougeois and his team.

    Champagne

    Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

    With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
