Eight Ranges 2017 Rosé and Pinot Gris, and 2014 Pinot Noir

26-Dec-2017

Brian and Rebecca Biggs purchased 8 Ranges in 2016, taking over the 3 ha vineyard of Mark Borrie and Trevor Deaker who established the site on Hillview Road, Alexandra, in 2001. Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir were planted in 2003, yielding the first wines in the 2006 vintage. The site occupies a spectacular position at 297 m altitude, and there are 8 mountain ranges (actually 12) visible from the vineyard, these being Remarkables, Cairnmuir, Pisa, Dunstan, Hawkdun, Raggedy, Old Man and Old Woman. James Dicey tends to the viticulture, and the wines are now made by Matt Connell, the previous wines made by Antony Worch, with Lucie Lawrence vinifying the 2010-2012 vintages. 800 cases are made annually. Here, I review the 2017 Rosé and Pinot Gris, made by Matt Connell, and the 2014 Pinot Noir, made by Antony Worch. www.eightranges.co.nz
