Auntsfield continues the proud heritage of Marlborough?s first vineyard and winery established in 1873. Their Single Vineyard wines are made from grapes grown at Auntsfield Estate. Each wine shows the distinctive characteristics of ripeness, texture and minerality - qualities unique to the ancient Greywacke rock and Loess clay soils of the vineyard. 

This wine pays tribute to David Herd, who established Marlborough?s first commercial vineyard and winery at Auntsfield in the 1870s. Using David?s original vineyard site and specific Muscat Clone, this wine is made by applying the Methode Ancestrale technique, which can be traced to production of the first sparkling wine ?Blanquette de Limoux? in 1531. As in the 1530?s and 1870?s, fermentation with natural yeast is completed in bottle.
The result is a wine that honours the foundational work of our ancestors and celebrates continued discovery and pleasure.

With each bottle being its own fermentation no two bottles are exactly the same.
Initially this wine has fresh aromas of fresh apple, elderflower, nashi pear with hints of mint, and wild honey. In the glass, the brighter apple and pear notes dissipate and reveal more of the Muscat floral and exotic spice aromas. The palate is light and lively with a fresh and crisp acidity. Light yeast lees in bottle give a generous weight to the pallet, with a brioche and almond flavours complimenting the floral varietal aromatics.
