PRESS RELEASE - Delta Black Market

Thanks to a new partnership between Delta Wine Company and Black Market, it's easier than ever to get your hands on this exclusive award-winning Marlborough wine.

Delta Wine Company was founded almost two decades ago with the intention of producing high quality single vineyard Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc.

While Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renown around the world, Delta Wines' founders recognised some of the unique micro-climates and soil types found in Marlborough were ideal for producing world-class Pinot Noir.

Pooling their extensive knowledge, they pinpointed the perfect place to plant the particular dijon clones of Pinot Noir they thought would thrive in the area's micro-climate and soil type. After 14 vintages and several major accolades under their belts, it would seem their punt paid off, with the wines getting better and better as the vines age.

Winemaker Heather Stewart says while the wines are exceptional drinking young, they will cellar well and will be drinking sublimely for many years to come.

"This new distribution model for Delta Wine Co. will see the wines being enjoyed by the huge and diverse clientele that Black Market has and it will also give us access to new on premise clients through Black Market's trade offering" Heather says.

If you are looking for a small-batch, single-estate wine of the highest quality that is a genuine expression of Marlborough, you can't look past the Delta Hatter's Hill Pinot Noir or Sauvignon Blanc. Head online to blackmarket.co.nz today and pick yourself up a bottle, only very limited amounts are produced each year.

Black Market was launched in 1999 and is a pioneer within the online wine industry. Richard Knight, founder and owner of Black Market believes this partnership is a win-win for all New Zealand wine lovers and Delta Vineyards. "Delta Vineyards produce world class award winning wines and we are very excited to be able to now offer these directly to our members and work with the very talented winemaker Heather Stewart."
