Notes The wine itself was fermented in stainless over a period of 10 days at an average temperature of 19 degrees. Piccolo is dry with a perfumed floral nose and notes of white peach, mango and musk. Mouthfeel is rich and velvety. An ideal wine for spicy food and risqué repartee. Piccolo will drink beautifully up to 4 - 5 years.

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.
