Region

The northern tip of South Island has become New Zealand`s most important wine region since sheep farming and cherry orchards were first replaced with vineyard in the 1970s. Much of the land is alluvial river basin with well-drained soils that provide an ideal environment for pungent, grassy Sauvignon Blanc. Pinot Noir from the more suitable clay slopes and Pinot Gris are also proving world-beaters.

Producer

In the heart of Marlborough, Turning Heads have a simple philosophy to accentuate all that is great about the region by utilising ripe fruit to craft premium wines. Launched in 2009, the wines are produced from estate vineyards and with the up to the minute packaging, will certainly turn a few heads.
Tasting Notes
Sourced from young vines from the Wairau region, the Turning Heads Wine Company has produced a typically vibrant aroma of ripe gooseberries, herb and nettle aromas to accentuate the Marlborough calling card. The selection of parcel of fruit are blended to create an expressive dry white that exhibits tropical flavours of pineapple and lime yet retains a crisp citrus acidity to balance a richly textured palate.
Food
Great accompaniment to white meats, seafood salads and green lipped mussels.
