Archangel ‘Stefania’ Riesling 2015, Chardonnay 2017 and Pinot Noir 2014


Archangel is the Central Otago wine venture of Mary and Ian Zurakowski who established their 23 ha of vines in Queensberry, just north of Lake Dunstan. The name ‘Archangel’ refers to the Arkhangelsk labour camp in Siberia which features in the family’s remarkable history. The vineyard was planted under the advice of Dr David Jordan to Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling, and is under the care of Gary Ford of Vinewise, who is guiding it towards BioGro organic certification. The wines are made by Pete Bartle of VinPro. Mary and Ian’s son Zenek has become fully involved in the business, and other business growth includes the opening of a cellar door last year and the addition of a rosé wine to the portfolio, which sold out very quickly. Here, I review the 2015 ‘Stefania’ Riesling, the 2007 Chardonnay and 2014 Pinot Noir. www.archangelwines.co.nz
