MOUNT FISHTAIL – THE MYTH, THE LEGEND.
High above the plains of Marlborough, New Zealand’s premium wine growing region for Sauvignon Blanc, one can see Mount Fishtail’s peak standing as a sentinel looking over the many quality vineyards in the area. This double peaked mountain is an inspiring omen and lead to a range of wines being released under its name.
Each day, these vineyards enjoy a splendid view of Mount Fishtail in the Richmond Ranges. And each year these grapes produce the characteristic vintages that make the classic Mount Fishtail range of wines.
A COMMITMENT TO HANDCRAFTED WINES
Quality is the absolute focus of Mount Fishtail wines and it starts in the vineyard. Here, no short cuts are taken in making a truly great wine, and this continues in the winery where ‘handcrafting’ is the applied standard.
Being a family-run business, control over quality is truly ‘hands on’. Through every day personal involvement, a focus on quality, and a commitment to wine lovers, makes this a labour of love.
Mount Fishtail's philosophy is: "the best fertilizer is the foot of the farmer".
