Cross Hares Canterbury 2017 Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir

28-Aug-2018

Natalie and Warwick Edwards purchased their 15 ha vineyard on the Christchurch-Akaroa Road in the foothills of the Port Hills entrancing Banks Peninsula in 2014. The vineyard was originally planted by Helen and Grant Whelan of Kaituna Valley Wines, but had fallen into a poor state. The Edwards have revitalised the Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir with technical advice from Glen Creasy. The fruit has gone to The Crater Rim winery, but in 2016 they produced a Pinot Gris for themselves from 3.5 tonnes of Pinot Gris fruit. The wine was made by Haydon Good, and was called ‘Cross Hares’ (click here to see my review). In the challenging, rain-affected 2017 vintage, they have produced a Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir from 4.0 tonnes of fruit. I review the wines here. www.crosshares.nz
