Charcoal Gully Central Otago 2014 and 2013 Gewurztraminer

19-Apr-2017
Charcoal Gully Estate is the Central Otago wine venture of Brian and Cheryll Sanders who have 9 ha of vines on their 28 ha property next to Mt Pisa Station on the western side of Lake Dunstan near Cromwell. There are 7 ha of Pinot Noir, these planted in 2003, and 2 ha of Gewurztraminer, planted in 2004. James Dicey tends to the viticulture, and the Sanders’ wines are made by Pete Bartle at ViPro. The name ‘Sallys Pinch’ refers to a Sally, spirited horse and the difficult, narrow pass, or ‘pinch’ at the top of Mt Pisa. The wines have had to date an excellent record at wines judging competitions and show a growing consistency of style. www.charcoalgully.co.nz
