Omaka Springs Estates is the sole producer of estate wines and olive oil in the Omaka Valley, which is part of the Southern Valleys of Marlborough. All of our grapes and olives are grown on our 180 acre estate located in the very heart of the valley and all of our wine is created on-sight by Winemaker, Ian Marchant. “Omaka” is a Maori word which translates to “where the springs flow.” Here in the valley, there are mineral-rich natural springs that meander through our vineyards, feeding the soils, and ultimately imparting a distinct, signature nuance of minerality in all our wines
This wine is fresh and vibrant with passion fruit, gooseberry and some melon characters. It has a balanced richness of fruit with a floral note through the palate, with intense depth of flavour and a crisp finish.
Will compliment green salads, sushi, shellfish, and veal. Think grilled, poached or roasted; chicken, seafood, pork, or vegetables. Pair with sharper ingredients such as capers, olives, horseradish, salt-cured meats, sour cream. Any dish with herbs as the main flavour. Good palate cleanser for fried appetizers; crab or lobster cakes. Achieves perfection when served alongside fresh oysters
