What else is there really to comment on about the famed Marlborough Wine region, except the glorious wine they have here!
We were so bowled over by it's magnificence, that we ended up staying for at least 2 hours in one of these fine wineries getting incredibly geeky on tasting a couple of pre-pay "wine platters" complete with a huge file that you are given to compare your palette findings with those of the wine maker and any reviews they have received from important wine dudes. We were shameless! Punching the air in triumph when we discovered we had correctly identified hyacinth nodes, or hints of pine cone after cross referencing our own notes with those in the file.

I think this officially makes us wine geeks.

(There might be pictures, if so, coming soonish...I think)
