Martinborough
First established in 1978, located just over 75 minutes east of Wellington on North Island, New Zealand, Martinborough is fast becoming a celebrated wine region thanks to its sought after Pinot Noirs and aromatic Sauvignon blancs which are both known to be full in flavor with a polished finish. In only three decades, Martinborough has been revolutionized as a leading world class wine village, thanks to its combination of old world and new world style. What this wine region lacks in size, it makes up for it in the distinct quality of wine that it produces.

Martinborough is one of the three wine sub-regions of Wairarapa, along with Gladstone and Masterton, and is linked from the Ruamahanga River to the Tararua mountains to Palliser Bay. The soil of this area are made up of river gravels and Martinborough is blessed with a warm micro climate which means cool autumns and springs combined with hot summers and cool nights. The unique soil content and favorable climate of Martinborough results in complex and varied wines that this region is known for.

Raymond Chan
Very pale pink colour, light edged. The nose is fresh with aromas of strawberries and cream, the fruit with good ripeness, the componentry very harmoniously presented, and quite mouthwatering from the youthfulness. Dry to taste, the palate is elegant in proportion, quite taut with strawberries and cream, along with thirst-quenching bitter cherry notes and a touch of herbs. Very fine-textured, and lively, crisp acidity, finishing clean, dry and lightly nuanced with red fruits. All Martinborough fruit, a blend of 35% Syrah, 30% Merlot, 15% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay, the Pinot Noir fermented in barrel, to 13.5% and dryness.
