THE WINES of MOUNT FISHTAIL WINERY
Marlborough has gained world recognition for its
Sauvignon Blanc grown on alluvial soils. Extensive sunshine hours
(over 2,500 hours per annum) and cool nights are the perfect
background for this crisp, clean wine with ripe tropical overtones,
so duly representative of the Marlborough region.
Our two family owned vineyards are located in the Wairau and
Waihopai Valleys of Marlborough, New Zealand.
The cooler Waihopai Valley site produces grapes with dominant
flavours and acid content. While the warmer Wairau Valley vineyard
produces full bodied wines with good alcohol and ripening potential.
After fermentation, the wines are blended to create our classic and
consistent Mount Fishtail range.
