Russian Jack 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, and 2017 Pinot Noir

31-Aug-2018

The ‘Russian Jack’ label originally began life as a tertiary brand for Martinborough Vineyards. However, it has proven to be very successful and Foley Family Wines now considers it a fully-fledged brand in its own right. The vineyard sources are spread out, and the full winemaking team are involved in the blending. At present, the back label acknowledges Martinborough Vineyard as the producer. The label was named after a ‘gentleman of the road’ in the Wairarapa district, who was thought to be of Russian descent. A mysterious figure, Russian Jack was welcomed on farms to pick fruit. There is a bronze erected in Masterton his memory. www.russianjack.co.nz
