It's not just the grinding winds from the west or the imposing presence of Tapuae-O-Uenuku, the towering peak that looms over Marlborough's Awatere Valley. It's not just the deep, rocky soils formed millions of years ago by relentless glaciers that molded the landscape. It's not just the arid climate marked by sun-drenched days and cold nights. It's the combination of all those things together that shape the inimitable character, flavours and textures of Vavasour wines.

Winery Tasting Notes
All Vavasour wines are pure expressions of their varietal designation and the singular terroir of our estate vineyard.
This 2013 Pinot is high toned, open and spicy with intense aromatics and layers of ripe juicy fruit flavours, strawberries and cherries.
There is also an underlying stratum of vanilla from 11 months of aging in French oak. The tannins are soft and silky and the finish is impressively long.
