In the province of Marlborough high sunshine hours are moderated by a mild sea, while steep mountains keep moist and chilly winds at bay. A long cool growing season leads to gorgeous flavours.
My goal is to make the Province wines in a classic Marlborough vein, emphasising the varietal intensity created by leafy vineyards, ripe fruit and cool-climate growing. – Simon Waghorn, Winemaker

Winery Tasting Notes
Mid straw gold.
Ripe melon and dried stone fruits with vanilla and butterscotch notes, and a subtle mealiness.
A wine of very elegant texture with stone fruit flavours, pleasing weight and a long, dry, minerally finish.
I think the wine will be at its best drinking after two years bottle age in early 2014.
Pasta, poultry, pork and ham, Mediterranean cuisine in general, white fish and scallops even in rich creamy sauces. Serve Cool room temperature.
