Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma Lime, ginger, and white peach with complex savoury and herbal notes.

Palate Finely poised acid supports a concentrated medley of stone fruit, kiwi and mineral flavours. Layers of flavour will emerge with time in the glass.

Pairs perfectly with seafood and salads and tomato, lemon and vinaigrette dressings.

Cellaring

Ideally this wine should be at its best around 5-10 years from vintage date.

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.
