Hawkshead 2015 Rosé, and 2014 Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir

05-Nov-2015
Hawkshead is the Gibbston-based Central Otago wine venture of Denis Marshall and Ulrike Kurenbach. Their vineyard is planted to 3 ha of Pinot Noir, planted in 2001 and 2002, this being extended with Pinot Gris in 2006. Denis and Ulrike have sourced Riesling from contracted fruit and extra Pinot Noir fruit to extend the range offered. With the 2015 vintage, they have released their first rosé wine, after 10 years of egging from Ulrike! The Hawkshead wines are made by Dean Shaw at the Central Otago Wine Co. Here, I review the 2015 Rosé, and 2014 Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, the latter a blend of Hawkshead fruit with Bannockburn fruit. www.hawksheadwine.com
