Tupari (Too-pa-ree) takes its name from the dramatic cliffs forming the Upper Awatere Valley of Marlborough where the Turnbull family and pioneering winemaker Glenn Thomas have collaborated to create wines of distinction. The Turnbull estate is situated on north-facing river terraces overlooking the braided Awatere River. Here, vigneron David Turnbull and his son Heath work with the terroir of the valleys unique terraces, employing sustainable viticulture to harness the special characteristics of the land.
Their carefully nurtured grapes allow renowned Awatere winemaker Glenn Thomas to create sophisticated, elegant wines displaying arresting flavour intensity and finely honed structure and balance. Their combined talents form an impressive partnership committed to producing a portfolio of exceptional wines. The Tupari range is a true reflection of the varietals that grow best in the Upper Awatere Valley and comprises Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Dry Riesling, Pinot Noir and Late Harvest Riesling.
