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.
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 all produced from estate vineyards.
This is a classic representation of Sauvignon Blanc from the Wairau Valley in Marlborough, bursting with aromatic tropical fruit characters found in this warmer sub-region.
