Auntsfield ‘Single Vineyard’ 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and 2017 Pinot Noir, and 2016 ‘South Oaks’ Sauvignon Blanc

03-Oct-2018

The Cowley family have continued the heritage of David Herd, who founded ‘Auntsfield’, Marlborough’s first vineyard of 1873. The Cowleys now have 65 ha of vineyard in 50 different plots surrounding Herd’s first area of plantings. The modern vineyard has Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (and a little Riesling), the vines tended by Ben Cowley. His brother Luc is the winemaker, and Auntsfield has three tiers of wine: the ‘Single Vineyard’ bottlings representative of the whole site, the ‘Single Block’ wines that showcase the personality of specific blocks, plus their flagship ‘Heritage’ wine, a Pinot Noir. Here, I review the ‘Single Vineyard 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and 2017 Pinot Noir, plus the 2016 ‘South Oaks’ Sauvignon Blanc. www.auntsfield.co.nz
