Auntsfield is Marlborough's first and oldest winery and vineyard. This winery boasts a proud history dating back 165 years. Auntsfield Estate is nestled in the lower slopes of the southern hills of Marlborough's Wairau Valley and covers 100 hectares, planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyard planting has taken full advantage of the diverse soils and meso-climates by separating the land into numerous distinctive blocks or micro-vineyards. Each of these blocks has been planted with a carefully selected clone for each variety. Proprietors Luc and Ben Cowley are now in charge of viticulture and winemaking respectively. Already winners of numerous awards, Aunstfield is establishing an international reputation for producing outstanding wines.

Our Single Vineyard wines are made from grapes grown at Auntsfield Estate. Each wine shows the distinctive characteristics of ripeness, texture and minerality – qualities unique to the ancient Greywacke rock and Loess clay soils of the vineyard.

Sauvignon Blanc – Auntsfield Estate aims to produce a distinctive style of Sauvignon Blanc. The style is aimed towards texture, complexity and length, balancing the typical Marlborough fruit spectrum and aromatics with richness and mouth feel.

Cool fermentation with cultured yeast in stainless steel tanks was utilized to retain the fresh varietal aromatics. This was balanced by a portion of the fruit subjected to traditional winemaking practices; handpicked, whole bunch pressed and fermented in seasoned oak barrels, adding texture and length to the wine.
