Bannock Brae 2017 Dry Riesling and 2016 ‘Goldfields’ Pinot Noir

06-Apr-2018

Crawford and Catherine Brown operate Bannock Brae, one of the very successful Pinot Noir producers of Pinot Noir. They established their vineyard on Cairnmuir Road in 1998 under the consultancy of Robin Dicey and immediately saw top wine competition results. Over time, they have consolidated their holdings to be more manageable on a personal level, but supplementing their own fruit with contracted grapes. They have Jen Parr as their winemaker. Here, I review the 2017 Dry Riesling, employing ‘semi-oxidative’ winemaking as is traditional in Germany, and the second tier 2016 ‘Goldfields’ Pinot Noir. www.bannockbrae.co.nz
