Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

The nose is salivatingly crisp like a summer salad bursting with juicy pineapple and lemon pith backed up by fresh green notes of basil and cut grass.

Flavours and Palate

The palate is practically exploding out of the glass it has so much energy weighty and refreshing with layers of lemon and lime pith with just squeezed grapefruit. Tangy citrus notes lead to a focused yet textural finish of white peach with delicious balance.

Marlborough, New Zealand

For many people, Marlborough, located at the top of the South Island, IS New Zealand. After all, it was Marlborough, and its acclaimed Sauvignon Blanc, that brought New Zealand to the wine world’s attention. But although Sauvignon Blanc remains the area’s flagship, Marlborough’s diverse meso-climates and sub-regions also offer pure, intensely flavoured Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and aromatic whites.

Spring Timlin – Winemaker

Spring Timlin – Winemaker

Based in Marlborough, Spring grew up in Christchurch and studied photography and sociology at university before taking a shot at winemaking. To get there she worked her way up through hospitality, on to Lincoln University to study winemaking, into the cellar, then the wine lab before becoming a fully-fledged winemaker. Spring’s bubbly personality and creative background is reflected in Squealing Pig wines.
