Aronui Nelson 2017 Rosé, and 2015 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

11-Oct-2017
The ‘Aronui’ brand comes under the Kono Beverages umbrella and is a sister label to the ‘Tohu’ wines. The wines represent the Nelson growing region and most of the fruit for the wines comes from the company’s 33 ha ‘Whenua Matua’ vineyard on tribal land in the Moutere Hills. The vineyard has Johnny Hiscox overseeing its management. The wines also employ fruit from contract growers to supplement the estate fruit. Already, the Aronui wines have achieved success in wine shows, the aromatic whites standing out. The fruit, once harvested is transported to the company’s Awatere Valley Marlborough winery, only three hours away, where experienced winemaker Bruce Taylor takes care of the vinification. Here I review the new release 2017 Rose and 2015 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. www.aronuiwines.co.nz
