Charles Wiffen Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

14-Dec-2017

charlesThe Charles Wiffen wines of Marlborough are quiet achievers. They are absolutely classical in expression and stylish without any extreme characters to make them overt and showy. This is the way Charles and Sandi prefer their wines, to drink easily and to satisfy without fuss. Their 50 ha of vines in the Lower Wairau and Southern Valleys district are tended carefully with their daughter Rebecca, assistant winemaker at Lawson’s Dry Hill, living on the land. And the wines are carefully crafted by Anthony Ivicevich and James Rowan ay West Brook in Waimauku, who understand the Wiffen style. There’s been no shortage for top awards and gold medals for the wines over the years. And that’s not likely to change with everything in its place. Here, I review the new 2013 Pinot Noir, launched quietly, and without fanfare. www.charleswiffenwines.co.nz
