Critic Reviews:

90 Points – Decanter – Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

This is taut, zesty and well focussed, with decent concentration of citrus and apple fruit. The wine is mostly fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks, but a small portion is barrel fermented to round out the edges and lend a slight nutty complexity to this powerful and driven Sauvignon Blanc.

87 Points – Wine Enthusiast – Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Typical aromas of grapefruit, passionfruit, lemon and snow peas are layered with some salty and herbal notes. There’s a touch of residual sugar on the palate balancing a lot of crisp acidity in this clean example of a classic style

Spy Valley Wines Story

The 1990s were a time of discovery and courage in Marlborough. Deep in the Waihopai Valley, Bryan and Jan Johnson had the audacity to establish 180 hectares of estate vineyards on land considered too hard, too dry and too unfertile for wine.

It was a venture that started with a passion for the land. This pioneering spirit established one of New Zealand’s most successful family-run wineries, now exporting eight varietals to 35 countries.

Today, Spy Valley’s commitment remains to the land and to the people who tend it – we are simply farmers at heart, nurturing soil and vine to cultivate the complexities in our wine. And we’re mindful that it’s our focus on sustainability which will ensure our guardianship of this land for generations to come.

We’re considered a little clandestine around here, deep in our bewitching valley. Perhaps it comes with being named for our proximity to the spy base down the road, but we like a bit of mystery.

Perhaps it’s because we are always searching for the best of the best to produce exceptional wine. Perhaps it’s because managing eight varieties of grapes takes a great deal of knowing the land, the environment and climate, and in the past we’ve classified these traditions.

These are secrets, however, that we’ve decided it’s time to share.
