Auntsfield estate is the home of marlborough's first colonial vineyard and winery. The original vineyard was established in 1873 and has made highly regarded wine for over 50 years. The dramatic hillside vineyard with its unique variety of soils is again producing premium wines under the guidance of the cowley family. Ripe stone fruit flavours of nectarine and dried apricot are complimented by a flinty minerality and subtle french oak influence giving hints of macadamia. A tight, well-structured palate with underlying minerality gives the wine seamless length and complexity.
