Overview

Pinot Noir is hand-harvested from vines in Spy Valley's Marlborough vineyard, gently separated from the stems and fermented in small, traditional open-top vats. These vats are hand-plunged to extract colour and tannin, and after pressing the wine is aged in French oak barrels.

This is a fruit-driven style of Pinot Noir with soft tannins and spicy oak.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep Purple/Garnet.

Aroma

Sweet cherries and red berries with a fragrant spicy layer on the nose. Subtle licorice and cocoa notes typical of Spy Valley vineyards.

Palate

Sweet fruit initially which drives through the palate to a firm, almost chewy finish. The long linear structure and red-fruited flavours typify a favourable Marlborough vintage.

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.
