They look like a couple of over sized, misplaced golf balls but they are in fact a satellite communications monitoring station (otherwise known as a spy base!) right there in the Wairau Valley, Marlborough.
These guys consistently produce award winning wines, particularly in the aromatics (Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer). We like to think of this one as 007-Riesling – but their cover has been blown with a stash of awards from wine shows all over the world over the years.
We love dry style Riesling like this – it’s crisp, zesty and refreshing as well as being super versatile when it comes to food. You can crack it open the moment it arrives on your doorstep or cellar it for the next 3-7 years and watch it develop.
Try with seafood, pork, Thai or other Asian dishes.
