Escarpment - Martinborough

Nestled among the undulating hills of Martinborough, Larry McKenna or Larry ‘McPinot’ as he is affectionately known, quietly crafts some of New Zealand’s most impressive wines.I have for a long time been tempted by Larry’s delicious, rich Pinot Noirs – the grape that he is most famous for – but a tasting of his equally delicious, fruit-driven Pinot Gris earlier this year decided the case.

Fairhall Downs - Marlborough

Established in 1982, Fairhall Downs is situated at the head of the Marlborough’s Brancott valley and is one of the few family-owned, single vineyard wine estates in the region. Their Sauvignon Blanc is first class, made in an elegant style with good minerality. The superb Pinot Gris shows why this variety is gaining enormous popularity among wine drinkers.  The mouth-watering Chardonnay is rich and complex with a biscuity finish.
