Borough Pinot Gris 2020 

Vineyards

Our Pinot Gris grapes come from a small and strategically selected vineyard site in the heart of the Wairau Valley, Marlborough. The grapes were harvested in optimal conditions in early April after an ideal growing season that was characterised by warm temperatures and very little rain.

Winemaking

Individual batches were gently pressed, ambiently settled, racked and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks - and a small proportion of French oak barriques. Our winemakers selected yeast strains to specifically enhance the unique aromatics and flavours of this fabulous Marlborough Pinot Gris.

The 2020 Borough Pinot Gris is beautifully aromatic with layers of white fleshed nectarine, Beurre Bosc pear and appealing creamy, spice characters. The off-dry palate delivers a refreshingly vibrant style of Pinot Gris with a succulent mouth feel and refined spicy pear skin phenolics, giving a long and textural finish. A moreish wine!

Food Match

Perfect with a wide range of foods such as salty feta or washed-rind cheeses, wood-smoked salmon and slow-roasted pork with crackling. Alternatively, fantastic on the patio watching the sun go down, with great company and banter.

Borough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Vineyards

Several small and strategically selected Marlborough vineyard sites were harvested in optimal conditions during late March and early April after an ideal growing season characterised by warm temperatures and very little rain.

Winemaking

The individual batch for this wine was machine-harvested in the cool temperature of early morning to maintain freshness, then rapidly transported to the winery where it was gently pressed. Our winemakers ensured it was ambiently settled, racked and cool fermented in stainless-steel vats with a selected yeast strain to enhance the unique expression and vibrancy of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

The 2020 Borough Sauvignon Blanc leaps out of the glass with layers of fresh citrus, crunchy capsicum and ripe guava aromatics. This follows on to the palate, which also displays delicious lime pith notes and a light touch of fresh coriander - with subtle hints of tropical fruit and an exquisitely complex lingering taste.

Food Match

Perfect with a wide range of foods such Asian-style seafood dishes (think oysters, scallops, crab, clams, lobster, prawns) – basically any shellfish with zingy flavours or a citrus or garlic marinade or dressing. Thai-style chicken salad or grilled fish (such as swordfish) are equally fantastic!

Hear from the Winemakers

Our winemakers say: “In true Marlborough style, this wine is crisp, with bright acidity providing length and freshness to the palate. Delicious wine for every occasion!”

Borough Pinot Rosé 2020

Vineyards

Our Pinot Noir grapes (for this Rosé) came from a small and strategically selected vineyard site in Marlborough’s Southern Valley. The grapes were harvested in optimal conditions during March, after an ideal growing season that was characterised by warm temperatures and minimum rain.

Winemaking

Our grapes were individual batch hand-harvested in the cool temperature of early morning to maintain maximum freshness. Upon arrival at the winery they were gently pressed, ambiently settled, racked and cool fermented in stainless steel vats. Our winemakers specially selected yeast strains to enhance the unique, fruity expression of this Marlborough Pinot Rosé.

The 2020 Borough Pinot Rosé is fragrant and elegant, with the fruity deliciousness of strawberries and pomegranates, and elderflower notes. The palate flows harmoniously into a generous finish.

Food Match

Well-matched to light salads, light pasta and rice dishes. Especially great with seafood, raw and lightly cooked shellfish, and grilled fish and goats’ cheeses.

Hear from the Winemakers

Our winemakers say: “An aromatic wine, with succulent raspberry and strawberry notes. On palate this wine is creamy, with the crisp freshness of berries developing to a textured, long and seductive finish.”
