Inside Story
Back in 1980, Michael Tiller, then working as a pilot for Air New Zealand, and his wife Robyn planted a few acres of Chardonnay vines on a Marlborough hillside Michael had first noticed from the air. As the region’s wine industry exploded, demand for their grapes took off, and soon the Tillers expanded, planting Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. By 1994, the Tillers were selling their fruit to some of the region’s leading wineries. Encouraged by the quality of their grapes and the success of their customers, the Tillers decided to become vintners themselves, naming their label in honor of Michael’s late mother.

Winemaker Carlos Ortega joined the winery in 2012, bringing expertise from stints in Spain, Chile, California and France. The Tiller’s three children are also part of the team: Jane is assistant winemaker, Brad manages the vineyards and Caitlin leads international sales and marketing. The Tillers grow ten different clones of Pinot Noir, each with slightly different flavors, and pick and vinify them separately. The final art comes in blending this wine, which offers classic bright cherry fruit and lifted aromatics.
In the Glass
The Isabel Pinot Noir is beautifully aromatic, with vibrant red cherry and earthy forest floor aromas. On the palate it’s sleek and vibrant, with polished tannins and bright, juicy cherry and baking spice notes.
At the Table
Showcasing Pinot Noir’s seductive charms, this is a versatile wine at the table. It will stand up to poultry and lighter red meats, but thanks to its soft tannins and bright acidity, it can also pair beautifully with vegetable dishes and meaty fish. Mushrooms and root vegetables will play to Pinot’s earthy side, while accents of dried or fresh fruit (think chutneys or fruity sauces) will harmonize with its cherry tones.
