Produced from the Wairau region of Marlborough (one of New Zealand`s driest and sunniest areas). This wine is aged in a combination of new and old fine grain French oak for 10 months. This cherry coloured wine has clean fresh fruit aromas on the nose. The palate has ripe red fruit characters of plums, cherries and raspberries along with smoky oak and well integrated, supple tannins. A medium bodied wine with a sustained and elegant finish.
The northern tip of South Island has become New Zealand`s most important wine region since sheep farming and cherry orchards were first replaced with vineyard in the 1970s. Much of the land is alluvial river basin with well-drained soils that provide an ideal environment for pungent, grassy Sauvignon Blanc. Pinot Noir from the more suitable clay slopes and Pinot Gris are also proving world-beaters.
In the heart of Marlborough, Turning Heads have a simple philosophy to accentuate all that is great about the region by utilising ripe fruit to craft premium wines. Launched in 2009, the wines are produced from estate vineyards and with the up to the minute packaging, will certainly turn a few heads.
I needed a considerable amount of wine on sale and return for a big party. Charles Wharton gave me good advise on a choice of wines which were excellent as was the service.
Just excellent service
