Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Pear-drop, melons and honey. Ripe citrus shows through, while notes of oats and nuts sit in the background. The warm vintage has also produced a subtle cinnamon spice character.

Palate

The bright pear-drop and ripe citrus characters are the main flavours, very typical of the variety and vineyard sites. The structure shows mouthfilling grip and richness typical of this full bodied Pinot Gris style.

Food Match

Pairs perfectly with seafood, pasta, poultry and creamy garlic sauces.

Cellar

Please do. This concentrated wine will reward patience and optimum drinking will be from 3-7 years from vintage date.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Spy Valley Wines is situated on the sunny southern side of Marlborough's Wairau Valley, nestled on the terraces of the Omaka river are the vineyards of Johnson Estate.

Bryan and Jan Johnson established the first of their 380 acres of estate vineyards in 1993. Pioneers in what was then a Marlborough sub region, the Lower Waihopai development continued with fruit being grown and sold to other wine companies.

From vintage 2000 wine was produced and sold under the Spy Valley label. The brand name SPY VALLEY® is derived from the presence of a satellite communications monitoring station (spy base) nearby, part of the Echelon Global Network.

The Envoy range of wines was released in 2007 and represents small parcel wine production from specific vineyard sites off Johnson family estate vineyards. The wines are vineyard designated and represent winemaker interpretations of site and vintage.
