Tasting Notes

"A standout from Marlborough from an excellent site. Churton often fly outside of the blue-chip banner, but are firmly in my top ten list of producers in New Zealand. Here’s a good reason why, again, to visit the producer or explore the wines. Hello ! Beautiful, fragrant perfume, red cherries, faint musk, gentle undergrowth savouriness, a touch of orange/orange peel. The palate is silky yet shows a fine sheath of tannin keeping things shapely and long. Mouthwatering, fine finish. This is a class act. Stellar pinot noir of structure, seriousness and fine texture with drinkability in tow."

The Producer

Churton

Churton is a biodynamically farmed, organic (registered with Biogro NZ) vineyard situated in the southern hills of Marlborough. Producing Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir as well as small quantities of Viognier and Petit Manseng, Churton's core philosophy is New World wine tempered with Old World style. Winemaker & owner, Sam Weaver, takes advantage of the site's altitude (200m), clay based soils and superb north-east aspect to create wines that are approachable in youth but with a remarkable ability to age. These are wines of integrity that eloquently express their unique terroir and organic origins.
