Sourced from hidden vineyards in the Awatere Valley, this little pig is packed with passionfruit and herbaceous aromas on the nose. On the palate, it’s all about crisp, citrus flavours with a long finish. Best to drink when young and fresh.
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.
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.

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.
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.
