Coal Pit Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc 2018


Rosie Dunphy began her Central Otago wine venture in 2001 when she purchased a vineyard that was established in 1994 on the site of a historical coal pit in Gibbston. Since taking ownership, she has revitalised the vineyard, planted to 5.5 ha of Pinot Noir and 2.0 ha of Sauvignon Blanc, as well as building a 30 tonne winery on site in 2007. Gary Crabbe tends to the viticulture with his wife Lynn Horton making the wine. It has just been announced that Lynn is taking a break from winemaking, and that Coal Pit has appointed Anika Willner, with international wine experience, and who worked at Coal Pit for the 2018 vintage, as winemaker, with Olly Masters as winemaking consultant. Here, I review the new release 2018 Sauvignon Blanc. www.coalpitwine.com
