Bald Hills 2010 Bannockburn Pinot Noirs

19-Mar-2012

Blair and Estelle Hunt first planted their 11 ha Bannockburn site on Cornish Point Road with 5.5 ha of Pinot Noir, clones 5, 6, 10/5 and 115 in 1997, with 1 ha each of Riesling and Pinot Gris a year later. The vines, managed by Grant Roulston of Vinewise since 2000 has provided quality fruit for winemaker Grant Taylor making award winning wine from the first Bald Hills vintage in 2002. In 2009, Chris Keys joined Grant with the winemaking for the Hunts, the wine being made at the Gibbston Valley winery. The big news for the Hunts earlier this year was their 2009 Pinot Noir winning the Trophy for Best Pinot Noir at the 2012 Sydney International Wine Competition, a show where the Bald Hills wines have enjoyed considerable success over the years. Here are my reviews of the 2010 Pinot Noirs. These are wines that grow wonderfully in the glass. www.baldhills.co.nz
