Fifth Bridge Central Otago 2018 Rosé, and 2017 Pinot Gris, Riesling, Pinot Noir and LH Riesling

15-Nov-2018

The ‘Fifth Bridge’ label is ostensibly the second tier to the Dicey family’s ‘Ceres’ brand. Whereas the Ceres wines come exclusively from family owned vineyards in the Bannockburn area, the Fifth Bridge wines can be made from the wider Cromwell Basin area, from vineyards managed by James Dice’s viticultural business. While brother Matt Dicey makes many of the wines, Fifth Bridge can include wines made by other winemakers. The wines are designed to be more fruit-focussed and approachable, but still show regionality. Fifth Bridge is owned by James Dicey and his wife Odelle. The name is from the fifth bridge which connects Bannockburn and Cromwell. Here, I review the 2018 Rosé, and 2017 Pinot Gris, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Late Harvest Riesling. I have reviewed the 2017 Pinot Gris and Riesling before, and my notes are consistent (which is very pleasing)! www.cereswines.co.nz
