Expert Reviews

www.jancisrobinson.com (Global, UK), 20 Mar 09

Vintage: 2009

"Determinedly dry and savoury with the lightest of oaky top dressings. Full, rich panoply of sweet fruit on the front palate and real zest. An extremely complex wine. Long with great layers. A honeyed element to it plus cough medicine spice. Very engrossing. Winemaker Ben Glover is clearly doing a great job here."

Winery Tasting Notes

The 09’ vintage is an outstanding example of what Marlborough Chardonnay can achieve! Refined, elegant & restrained, with the benchmark Wither Hills fruit profile of nectarine, lime, grapefruit pith, sorbet notes interlaced with fine grainy french oak nuances of spice, nutmeg and toasted almond. All this is bound up with the natural fruit structure, seamless acidity and poise from Mendoza clone along with the texture and minerality of the Rarangi vineyard component making this Chardonnay simply irresistable!

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Established in 1994, with vineyards strategically sited throughout Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, Wither Hills has always been dedicated to the philosophy that exceptional wines are ‘created in the vineyard’.

Named after the southern landmark range of Wither Hills that border our vineyards, our focused, hands on approach to winegrowing allows us to make a range of wines that reflect our passion for the ‘place where we stand’.

Winemaker Ben Glover

Ben Glover grew up among the vineyards of Marlborough and has worked at Wither Hills since its establishment almost ten years ago. In April 2007, he was appointed Chief Winemaker for the winery providing him with the opportunity to lead the award-winning winemaking team at Wither Hills.

He has a wealth of wine growing and winemaking experience across New Zealand and has worked internationally in Sonoma in California, Margaret River in Western Australia, Burgundy in France, and Puglia in Italy.

His particular passion is Pinot Noir, and the international accolades earned for the Wither Hills Pinot Noir are a reflection of Ben’s devotion to his craft.

His selection as the New Zealand representative scholar for the inaugural Len Evans tutorial in 2001 and his extensive experience as an international wine judge are testaments to his dedication to quality wine – both winemaker and as an appreciative wine drinker.

Ben has a Commerce Degree from Canterbury University and a Post Graduate degree in viticulture & oenology from Lincoln University.
