Isabel Estate is located just outside of Renwick village in the Wairau Valley at the heart of Marlborough’s wine region. The site benefits from all the climate characteristics that make the Marlborough renowned including extended sunshine hours combined with a long, cool growing season. Its soils are free-draining gravels with a narrow layer of tight clay in the subsoil that prevents excess water loss.

Densely planted vines, double the usual number in Marlborough further contribute to the concentration of flavour in the fruit. Narrow row and close plant spacing increase competition creating small bunch and berry size for more flavour intensity and complexity. Sustainable viticultural practices are used, including mulching and organic fertilisers to maintain soil nutrition while spraying is kept to minimum because of the cool, dry climate.

A pure tropical fruit nose of passionfruit and gooseberry gives way to nuances of blackcurrant, grapefruit and underlying flinty aromas. The palate is concentrated and enticing, coupled with the classic Isabel “Old Vine” mineral tones, making this wine refreshing and traditional in style. A creamy mid palate and balanced acidity gives the wine weight and length, and makes it a great accompaniment to freshly caught fish or mussels.
