Auntsfield 2013 ‘Single Vineyard’ Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

The Cowley family re-established Marlborough’s oldest vineyard site when in 1998 they purchased and planted 100 ha of vines around where David Herd grew and made wine in 1873. Their Auntsfield property at the end of Paynters Road in the Southern Hills has proven its provenance in the quality of the fruit from vines that viticulturist Ben Cowley tend and the wines that brother Luc vinifies. The ‘Single Vineyard’ wines are made from fruit that encompass the diverse soils and aspects of the estate and can be seen as expressions of the sub-region. These wines as well as the single site and super-premium ‘Heritage’ bottlings share a robustness that combines terroir and house style. Here, I review the 2013 ‘Single Vineyard’ Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
