From hand-picked grapes originating in two terroirs, both Rapaura and the hill slopes of Wairau in Marlborough. Fermented on wild yeasts and aged for 12 months in French barriques, it is positively Burgundian in style. Intense cherry fruit with earth and herb character, the tannins are soft and appealing A wonderful addition to the Walnut Block family of wines.

92 Points - Decanter Magazine, 'Bright, opulent dark fruits supported by spice and chocolate. Concentrated palate of walnut shell, leafy aromas and a ripe fruit core with light woodsmoke tones. Well-knit texture that is long and fresh' September 2016 (2014 vintage)

Walnut Block Wines

Walnut Block is the vision of two brothers – Clyde and Nigel Sowman. The Sowman family first planted the vineyard in 1996 in Marlborough’s premium Rapaura sub region. Combining their experience in viticulture and the wine industry with their passion and appreciation for fine wine, they have created their own unique range of superbly crafted Marlborough wines. Since introducing them last year, they have been a run-away success with Vintage Roots customers and we look forward to the new Pinot Noirs arriving. Why 'walnut'? Well because Marlborough’s oldest walnut tree, stands in the middle of the Sauvignon Blanc vines. Over 100 years old, the tree provides a special historical focal point for the vineyard and of course adds biodiversity too.
