Ceres ‘Black Rabbit’ Bannockburn Riesling 2017

10-Aug-2017
The Ceres label of the Dicey family in Bannockburn, Central Otago is maturing. The family operate four vineyards, these being the ‘Inlet’, ‘Black Rabbit’, ‘Full Circle’ and ‘Swansong’ sites, all in the Bannockburn sub-region. The initial wines were blends from the different vineyards, and the wines came under the ‘Composition’ tier. As the vines have grown in age, and the sites become balanced, we are seeing the introduction of single vineyard bottlings which capture the nature and terroir of the vineyards. Viticulturist James Dicey takes care of the vineyards and fruit, and the wine is made by Matt Dicey, better known as the winemaker of Mt Difficulty. The whole operation is overseen by the vastly experienced Robin Dicey, one of the region’s most respected viticultural pioneers. Here, I review the new 2017 Ceres ‘Black Rabbit’ Riesling, sporting a new designer, artistic label. www.cereswines.co.nz
