A Pinot Grigio with a new world twist.Fruit was selected from the Wairau and Waihopai valleys and used in the Durvillea blend to give perfumed and restrained fragrance, yellow golden hues and whilst crisp and fresh with a classy dryness it has a hint of ripe pears and minerality on the palate.Light bodied, but great with food it has balanced acidity and has a rich smooth finish.

Producer

A vivid green seaweed, known as Durvillea, waves from the sea along Marlborough`s rocky coastline, clinging to rocks at low tide. To the locals, it is known as Bull Kelp or Rimurapa. Our winemaker Simon Waghorn was drawn to Durvillea when studying toward a Masters of Natural Resources in 1980. He was planning to farm seaweed but changed course to undertake a career in winemaking. Its strong lines, shapes, textures and colours were the inspiration for this wine. It is symbolic of Simon Waghorn`s pure and complex wines from his acclaimed Astrolabe Winery.

His wife, Jane Forrest Waghorn recognised there is a market demand for a high quality, accessible wine.

The result is a strong distinctive brand, producing beautiful wines which come from sustainable vineyards and are environmentaly friendly.

Food

Seafood risotto, lightly grilled chicken and pan fried sea bream.

Awards

Bronze medal at the 2009 DWWA.
