Glasnevin ‘Limited Release’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2015

04-Apr-2017
The Johns family established their ‘Glasnevin Wines’ brand with their first releases from the 2007 vintage after many years of grapegrowing and winemaking experience in the Waipara Valley. They see the Glasnevin gravel soils formed from the Waipara alluvium as offering excellent drainage and aeration, and can predispose lower yields for high quality wines, which show minerality. The Johns Glasnevin wines come solely from these soils, and have in the past employed several high profile winemakers to produce their bottlings, which I’ve seen (and reviewed) to show excellent quality. Mat Donaldson is the contracted winemaker and the wines made at the Pegasus Bay facility. Here, I review the new release 2015 Pinot Noir. www.glasnevinwines.co.nz
