The epitome of the Marlborough but benefiting from the estate’s old vines and the soils on the south-western corner of our estate, our Sauvignon Blanc ascends with lush aromatics of fresh tropical green fruit, grapefruit and gooseberry, balanced by a refreshing structural flinty minerality and creamy textured finish. Drinks beautifully young but also develops intriguing characters with age.
With a bird’s eye view, Mike Tiller discovers a precious pocket of land; a unique area that even on the coldest of mornings was frost-free, with fertile soil and a unique aspect. Not once did it attract his attention but every time he passed overhead on his flight path to nearby Blenheim Airport.
Isabel Estate is located just outside of Renwick Village in the Wairau Valley at the heart of Marlborough’s wine region. We are one of the original wineries of the region, and remain true to our roots by creating exceptional wines that are 100 per cent estate-grown, estate-made and estate-bottled.
