Dunnolly Estate 2017 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris

08-Aug-2017
Peter and Felicity Parish established Dunnolly Estate with the purchase of 10 ha of bare land on Church Road in Waipara with the help of their son Matt in 1995. They planted Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines in 1996. The business is family run with Peter, a director of the company tending to the viticulture, daughter Nicky, based in Marlborough as the hands-on winemaker, and Matt, also a winemaker, based in the U.S.A. Initially operating as contract growers, they introduced their own brand, ‘Dunnolly Estate’ in 2009. 3.500 cases are made for the international market, but a domestic presence is being re-stablished. Single vineyard wines are made from their vines in Waipara, with parcels of other fruit including that from Marlborough sourced by Nicky supplement the range. Here, I review the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough and the Pinot Gris from Waipara. www.dunnolly.co.nz
