Grava Martinborough 2017 Rosé and LH Sauvignon Blanc

12-Nov-2018

Grava is the Martinborough winegrowing venture of Alistair Gardner and Karla Falloon and family, based on an established vineyard on and Lake Road, south of the village which they purchased in November 2014. The vineyard is planted to 2.0 ha of Pinot Noir, clones 777, 115 and Abel, 1.7 ha of Sauvignon Blanc and 1.5 ha of Riesling. Alistair is an experienced winemaker having worked overseas as well as in New Zealand, and is the winemaker at Alana Estate, taking over from Alex Craighead from the 2018 vintage. In the short time Alistair and Karla have run and had their inputs in the vineyard, they have quickly stepped up the quality of the wines. Here, I review the new release 2017 Rosé and the first of a Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc. www.grava.nz
