Description: Zephyr Wines is a family winery based in Dillons Point, Marlborough and was started by the Glover family in 1985 after being inspired by other mavericks in the region to convert their farm to vine.Tim Atkin described their Sauvignon Blanc as about as good as Marlborough gets and Matthew Jukes says their Pinot would wow Burgundian stalwarts". The Riesling follows suit in showcasing the more savoury and 'savage' style Zephyr has become renowned for. Winemaker Ben Glover says "I have always wanted to express the exquisite refined bouquet, the precise structure and the 'line' of these aromatic wines from our farm. Zephyr allows me to do this - winegrowing is a natural expression and extension of what our family and I have done on this property for years and the opportunity to pay them back with home grown, world class wines is too good to be true," says Ben.
