Overview

Aroma // Grapefruit and lime zest, with sweet underlying passionfruit pulp.

Palate // Dry with a vibrant acid tension, there is a sweet fruit character showing the

classic Marlborough interplay of tropical fruits, citrus and zesty currant and

guava flavours.

Cellaring // Ripe flavours from a warm vintage, and a subtly firm structure give the potential

for moderate cellaring.

The initial sweet fruit character will diminish after several

years, but expect pleasant drinking to at least 2022.

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.
