Located at the northern end of New Zealand’s South Island, Marlborough is one of New Zealand’s most famous wine regions.

The Marlborough region’s Sauvignon Blanc grapes have been recognised as some of the finest grapes of their type in the world. In fact, there is no doubt that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is overwhelmingly the New Zealand wine of choice on the world market.

It is for this reason, that Esk Valley Senior Winemaker, Gordon Russell embraced the idea of marrying the definitive Esk Valley style of winemaking with these world-famous grapes, to create Esk Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

The grapes selected by Gordon for this wine come from the renowned southern clays of Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley – areas known for their very fragrant fruit.
