Big Sky Te Muna Road Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

03-Apr-2018

Big Sky Wines is one of a number of high-profile, quality-focussed winegrowers on Te Muna Road in Martinborough. Katherine Jacobs and Jeremy Corban took over an established site with 1.8 ha of Sauvignon Blanc and clone 10/5 Pinot Noir, the vines planted in 1989, and 4.2 ha of clone 115 Pinot Noir. Originally supplying contract fruit, they now focus on their own wine. Katherine and Jeremy are both fully hands-on in the vineyard, and making the wine. They have an eclectic range with sparkling and oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc, Gruner Veltliner, a rosé and two tiers of Pinot Noir, the flagship under the ‘Provenance’ label. Katherine and Jeremy source the Gruner Veltliner from neighbour Craggy Range, and supplement their own Pinot Noir with fruit from the ‘Pond Paddock’ vineyard over the road. The wines are generally fulsome and very tasty. Here, I review the 2015 Big Sky Pinot Noir. www.bigskywines.co.nz
