Winery Tasting Notes

A riper component was then fermented using wild yeasts in seasoned French oak barrels. This is invariably slower, but allows the wine to develop its natural potential, and results in a more complex, premium grade quality wine, with a longer life.

A vibrant, lively wine, this balances the freshness of melon and lime with rich ripe tropical fruit on the palate and a lingering finish

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Our Cravens Road vineyard, in Marlborough, occupies an extremely picturesque site backed by the Richmond Range, with the Wairau River just 200m from the vines. Cravens Creek winds through the vineyard and is an obvious feature. One characteristic is its relative uniformity: its deep silt loam soils, with moderate to high fertility and good water-holding capacity, promote greater consistency in fruit development and maturation.

Due to its uniformity the block was planted in a North/South row orientation to maximise sun exposure using close vine spacings (2.4m rows x 1.8m vines) to reduce the yield per vine (thereby increasing the quality of the fruit). The entire vineyard was hand-planted over a 10-week period in the summer of 2003 resulting in the first small harvest of 2005.Maven also selects grapes from other local vineyards that can meet its demanding standards, for its award-winning Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Merlot.Maven Wines is a member of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand, a programme to promote environmental best practices and guarantee quality assurance.
