Huntress 2018 ‘Waikura’ Rosé and 2017 Pinot Noir


Huntress is the own label of Jannine Rickards, winemaker of considerable experience, and an avid outdoors person who loves to forage and hunt for food. Jannine has a strong track record for her work ethic, initially starting at Sileni Estates, then Te Kairanga, with Ata Rangi for 7 vintages and 3 vintages at Pegasus Bay, and then back to the Wairarapa for a stint at Julicher, and now she is at Urlar. In between, she has managed to fit in work in California, Burgundy and Australia. Clearly Jannine is a person of high energy! The 2018 ‘Waikura’ Pinot Noir Rosé, Waikura referring to the red glow in the sky, in Te Reo Maori, and the 2017 Martinborough Pinot Noir are her inaugural releases. I review the wines here. The wines have flavour profiles and the textures that match the wild food that Jannine loves. For availability, contact Jannine on Email: [email protected]
