Archangel Central Otago 2018 ‘Lace’ Rosé and Pinot Gris, and 2015 Pinot Noir

09-Aug-2018

Mary and Ian Zurakowski established Archangel Wines in 2003, planting 23 ha of vines in Queensberry, just north of Lake Dunstan in Central Otago. The name Archangel refers to the fascinating past of the founders through the Second World War and after. The vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling and is under the care of Gary Ford of Vinwise, who is guiding it towards organic certification, all things going well, in March 2019. The wines are made by Pete Bartle of VinPro, and these wines show the quality of the fruit as well as the standard of the winemaking. Mary and Ian’s son Zenek has taken on much of the running of the operation now and already there have been new developments such as the opening of a cellar door, and the introduction of a rosé wine to the brand. Here, I review the new release 2018 ‘Lace’ Rosé and Pinot Gris, and 2015 Pinot Noir. www.archangelwines.co.nz
