Dunnolly Estate Waipara 2017 ‘Reserve’ Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir

09-Jul-2018

Dunnolly Estate is the winegrowing venture of the Parish family who planted their vineyard on Church Road, Waipara in 1996. The vineyard, planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir initially served as a contract fruit source until 2009 when the Parish Family introduced their own label ‘Dunnolly Estate’. Single vineyard wines are made from the Waipara vineyard, and this output is supplemented by fruit from other North Canterbury sites and Marlborough-fruited wines. Peter Parish tends to the viticulture, and the winemaking is by daughter Nicky who works in Marlborough, with inputs by son Matt, also a winemaker. Here, I review the new release 2017 ‘Reserve’ Chardonnay and 2017 Pinot Noir, both from the home Waipara vineyard. www.dunnolly.co.nz
