The Donnelly’s Block is an area of the property that is the furthest away from the sea and subsequently represents the highest point – 160 meters above sea level. It is on the North facing slopes so is also the most sheltered area of the vineyard, avoiding the spring southerlies which slow down early seasonal growth. It consistently produces the most distinctive, aromatic Sauvignon Blanc fruit on the estate.

Winery Tasting Notes


Selected from the two best Sauvignon Blanc parcels on Donnelly's Block this aromatic wine shows lifted flavours of blackcurrant with underlying notes of wet stone and thyme.


The palate is elegant yet full with sufficient weight and texture, which is balanced by the flinty minerality typical of the Seaview Vineyard.

Food Matching

This wine is a fantastic match with foods such as cheese salad, poultry dishes and a wide range of seafood dishes including freshly shucked natural oysters, prawns, green lip mussels and creamy scallops.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Yealands Estate is based in the Awatere Valley to the south east of Marlborough's Wairau Plains. Their vineyard stretches from the foothills of the Seaward Kaikoura ranges to the bluffs overlooking Cook Strait on the east coast of Marlborough.

Back when Marlborough's wine industry started to gather momentum in the Awatere everyone thought the steep contours of these foothills were too challenging for viticulture. Everyone that is except Peter Yealand. He recognised that with careful development and clever thinking this terroir would produce great wine. In 2002 he began consolidating his vineyards here, extending his existing interests on the Wairau Plains with the development of some 950 hectares of rolling Awatere country which he terraced into vineyard blocks to create New Zealand's single largest privately-owned vineyard.
