Prior to the late 1800’s the Wairau and Opawa rivers would occasionally flood the Wairau Plains of Marlborough, New Zealand. Fortunately an island area consistently stood above the raging flood waters, providing explorers, herdsman and travelers a dry respite. The infamous Sir William Fox, a controversial politician, writer and explorer regularly passed over the island to negotiate with the native Maori people and is from whence Foxes Island winery derives its name. John Belsham founded Foxes Island in 1992 to focus on exquisitely made, regionally expressive wines; exactly what he had learned to do in France. He initially made the wines for Foxes Island from his Rapaura vineyard on the Wairau Plains and produced the very first Fox wine. In search of a Pinot Noir site, Belsham identified the overgrown and neglected 20 hectare Awatere property in 1998 and envisaged the Belsham Awatere Estate. With seven distinct terraces and exceptional soil profiles, the land was planted primarily to Pinot Noir along with select blocks dedicated to Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. 20 years on, Belsham’s passion for producing exceptional wines has yet to wane; limited in production and genuinely hand crafted, all the wines hold pride of place at the Fox house.

Absolutely irresistible, this wine has the classic Belsham signature of texture and interesting layers of flavour. Aged for 3 months on lees to add depth and dimension, expressions of ripe stone fruit, tree ripened Key lime, wild alpine herbs and wet stone harmonize with pitch perfect acidity and a long, creamy finish.
