Awatere River ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Chardonnay 2016

16-Aug-2017
Louis Vavasour has continued his family’s legacy of working on Marlborough land which dates back to 1887. The Vavasours feature in the Awatere Valley, where Louis’s parents Peter and Anna established the first commercial grapevines in 1986. The Awatere River Wine Co. was established to showcase Marlborough wine, particularly Awatere bottlings, but Louis’ outlook includes the wider Marlborough area, and the wines he and his winemaker Andrew Parley make are dependably fine examples of the region. Here, I review the 2016 ‘Single Vineyard;’ Chardonnay made from fruit from the Southern Valleys. www.arwc.co.nz
