Expert Reviews

91 Points 2017 Nick Stock for James Suckling

4 Stars / 90 Points 2017 Huon Hooke

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma: Ginger loaf, apricot, fig and citrus.

Palate: Dry in style. Intense lemon-curd with a little spice and a rich yeasty influence. A dry, crisp, limey finish.

Riesling loves age, and we think this wine will be peaking between 3 - 7 years after harvest.

Pairs perfectly with pasta and poultry. Pan-fried Snapper with coconut milk, capers and cucumber.

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.
