Ceres ‘Black Rabbit’ Riesling 2018 and ‘Composition’ Pinot Noir 2017

12-Oct-2018

The influential Central Otago Dicey wine family has ‘Ceres’ as their own label, based on the fruit from their ‘Inlet’, ‘Black Rabbit’, ‘Full Circle’ and ‘Swansong’ vineyards sited around Bannockburn. In the earlier stages of development, wines made from blends of the different sites were used. But as the vines have matured and the family grow in understanding of the terroirs, Ceres has released a number of single vineyard wines that express the character of the site. The ‘flagship’ wines are the single vineyard Pinot Noirs under ‘The Artists Collection’ tier (click here to see my recent reviews of the two top 2016 wines). Here, I review the new single vineyard ‘Black Rabbit’ Riesling 2018, and the ‘Composition’ Pinot Noir 2017 made from fruit blended from the ‘Inlet’ and ‘Black Rabbit’ vineyards. www.cereswines.co.nz
