Located in the Wairau Valley in the heart of Marlborough, Isabel Estate receives the full benefit of extended sunshine hours combined with a long, relatively cool growing season. Long, brilliantly sunny, mild autumns allow for the development of intense flavours and aromas in the fruit. Isabel has some of the oldest vines in the Marlborough region producing exceptional quality grapes and wines including: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling. Yields for the Isabel wines are restricted by pruning to low bud numbers and, where necessary, shoot and bunch thinning ensures that the fruit quality is fully optimised.
