Domain Road 2015 and 2014 Whites and 2013 Pinot Noir

11-Mar-2016
Graeme and Gillian Crosbie and their families have had a long association with the land around Bannockburn and established their 6.5 ha home block vineyard on Domain Road on the upper Bannockburn Terraces with Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. Buoyed by the success of their wines, they expanded by purchasing a further 10 ha on Felton Road, planting Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and more Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Noir, naming this the ‘Defiance’ vineyard as a sign of their actions against the trend at the time of the GFC. The viticulture is under the care of Fiona Johnman and the wines made by Peter Bartle and VinPro. Here, I review a selection of 2015 and 2014 whites, and the 2013 Pinot Noir, the 2015 Pinot Gris being the first release from the ‘Defiance’ vineyard. www.domainroad.co.nz
