Gladstone Vineyard and 12,000 Miles 2018 Releases and 2016 ‘Sophie’s Choice’


After having put Gladstone Vineyard on the market for sale, it was announced earlier this year that ‘Odyssey Capital Group’ an Asian alternative asset company in partnership with ‘The Flying Winemaker’ Eddie McDougall had acquired the business from Christine and David Kernohan. Essentially it’s business as usual with Christine, winemaker Craig Fryett and other key staff staying on. It is pleasing to see a settled outcome in such circumstances, as no doubt, there is much more certainty in the future, and this will show in the more positive nature of the wines being made. Here, I review a selection of 12,000 Miles, the popular-drinking tier, and premium Gladstone Vineyard 2018 releases, plus the 2016 sophisticated oak-influenced ‘Sophie’s Choice’ Sauvignon Blanc.  The wines show the inclusion of some adventurous winemaking techniques. www.gladstonevineyard.co.nz
