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 captivating ruby red in colour matches an aromatic nose that unveils itself with layers of wild flowers, perfumed violets and red cherry notes. Concentrated flavours of black cherry, Kalamata olive and dried herb intertwine with sinewy tannins and judiciously selected French oak to create a long, memorable finish. Attractive in its youth with fruit purity, it will make an equally great sleeper with bottle age developing extra complexity.
