As the first estate to plant Sauvignon in New Zealand, Single Peak is a Kiwi wine favourite. We delve into their exceptional, award-winning range of vino.
Named after the distinctive mountain range looming over the vineyards in Marlborough, Shingle Peak was one of the pioneers in the region and have produced expressive wines since 1983.
The Shingle Peak standout, this sauvignon blanc features bold notes of gooseberry, citrus and mouth filling tropical fruits.
It retains a relatively dry quality due to the low residual sugar and the cool, dry conditions in which the grape is grown.
It’s a perky wine with a polished, full and Pinot Gris-esque texture. An ideal food match with pan seared scallops and fresh salads.
Pale green straw in colour, their pinot gris is a vibrant wine with flavours of pear, melon fruit, citrus and spice, followed by firm acidity.
Try it with goats cheese or fresh seafood.
A fresh and lively chardonnay with lifted aromas of toasty apple and pear. The dry finish is balanced out by the wine’s smooth texture – perfect for snapper or more delicate fish.
A serious pinot noir and great wine to whip out at impromptu dinner parties (pork belly and fennel are a delicious match). It has complex flavours of rich cherry, plum and a touch of spice.
Hints of cherry, plum, liquorice and berry fruits work in unison with this wine’s fine tannins and spicy oak. It’s vibrant red in colour and can be consumed young but will continue to develop and improve after a couple of years in the cellar.
Pair it with a hearty roast lamb and blue cheese kumara mash.
