Cable Bay Awatere 2016 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, and 2015 Chardonnay

07-Jun-2017
Cable Bay is best known as a producer of elegant, sophisticated Waiheke Island wines, that are readily obtained from the stylish cellar door complex at Oneroa. However, owners Loukas and Caroline Petrou have also invested in Marlborough, purchasing their Redwood Pass Road vineyard in the Awatere Valley 2013. There are 28 ha of close-planted vines, in Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The vineyard is under the care of Bart Arnst, who is heading towards organic certification. As the vines mature and as winemaker Chloe Somerset has become more familiar with the nature of the site and the fruit, we are seeing an increasingly interesting and more serious bottlings with each vintage. Here, I review the new 2016 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, and 2015 Chardonnay. www.cablebay.co.nz
