Ataahua Waipara Valley 2013 and 2012 Releases

With some of the oldest vineyards in the Waipara Valley, Stephanie Henderson-Grant and Andrew Grant have a proven resource backed by a broad spectrum of wine industry experience from winemaking to sales and marketing and business management to make fine wine. They own vineyards that were originally planted in the 1980s, the three blocks with Merlot and Pinot Noir established in the early 1990s and Gewurztraminer planted in 2005 and 2006. For their other wines, they access fruit from neighbouring sites. The first Ataahua wines were from the 2008 vintage. I review a selection of the new 2013 and 2012 wines.
