Grove Mill 2015 Chardonnay, and Te Tera 2016 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

The wineries under the Foley Family Wine group are thriving following investment in the vineyards and wineries. Vavasour has been owned the longest, and a recent visit by winemaker Stu Marfell showed his confidence and enthusiasm, as well as several very smart wines he had a hand in making (click here to see my report). It is clear that Te Kairanga in the Martinborough region is flourishing, with winemaker John Kavanagh making increasingly higher quality wines, realising the potential of the vineyards. The more recent additions Grove Mill and Marlborough, and Martinborough Vineyards are also showing the benefits of a stable and strong financial base. The wines from all four wineries are being awarded more awards in wine shows and receiving critical acclaim from the wine media. Here, I review three wines, a Grove Mill Chardonnay 2015, and two 2016 Martinborough Vineyards ‘Te Tera’ wines, a the first release of a Chardonnay in this tier, and a Pinot Noir. www.grovemill.co.nz  www.martinborough-vineyard.co.nz
