Charles Wiffen Marlborough 2017 Pinot Rosé and 2012 Gewurztraminer

26-Jul-2018

The Wiffen family have farmed in Marlborough since 1907, and were pioneers in grapegrowing, planting their vineyard in the Lower Wairau and Southern Valleys in 1980. Their fruit remains an important source for a number of successful labels, but the Wiffen family have enjoyed much success under their own label launched in 1997, ‘Charles Wiffen’, which is based on estate fruit, with a little sourced from contracted vineyards. Charles and Sandi Wiffen have a broad range of wines, made at West Brook winery by James Rowan, with some of the wines made by their daughter Rebecca, who is a winemaker at Lawson’s Dry Hills. Here, I review the latest release Pinot Rosé from the 2017 vintage, and a Gewurztraminer from the 2012 vintage, that is fully mature. www.charleswiffenwines.co.nz
