The wineries in Marlborough offer a collection of excellent wines, mainly from the grapes:
- Red Varieties: Pinot Noir, Syrah;
- White Varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling;
Sauvignon Blanc of Marlborough has undeniably a brilliant success, but this region’s wine profile is very diverse: also producing excellent Chardonnay, Rieslings, sweet white botrytized, and sparkling wines by different methods.
Thanks to its piercing taste and rich acidity, Marlborough grapes are ideal for the production of sparkling wines of the highest class. The versatility of the region is also confirmed by the fine wines from Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. The performance of Cabernet Sauvignon is not stable, but Pinot Noir and Merlot, which ripen much earlier, are the stars among the red wines of Marlborough.
