Dr Renwick Wines of Marlborough

18-Jun-2012
A second tier for Isabel Vineyard, the ‘Dr Renwick' wines are named after Dr Thomas Renwick who gave his name to the small settlement of Renwicktown in 1856. Now called Renwick, it is one of the major markers of the Marlborough vignoble. Isabel Vineyard is a Renwick cornerstone, established in 1980 by Michael and Robyn Tiller. It is one of the largest family owned vineyards at 105 ha, and is one of the oldest. It has proved to be a fine source of fruit over the years, and it, along with the Isabel winery is fully BioGro certified organic. Winemaking is now in the hands of Carlos Orgiles Ortega, partner of daughter Jane Tiller, Carlos taking over from Patricia Miranda. The ‘Dr Renwick' wines have good palate presence, and benefit with time in the glass to show their underlying fruit. www.isabelestate.com
