Julicher Estate and ’99 Rows’ Te Muna Pinot Noir 2015

11-Sep-2018

Julicher Estate is one of a number of producers who have proved the Te Muna Road area of Martinborough is an ideal place to grown Pinot Noir (and other varieties). Wim Julicher established the estate in 1996 planting vines, and releasing his first wines with the 2002 vintage. The Pinot Noirs have rewarded Wim and his partner Sue Darling with numerous gold medal and trophy awards since, and these successful wines are not only the premium ‘estate’ wine, but also the second tier ’99 Rows’. Wim and Sue are fully involved in the business, and had Outi Jakovirta as their winemaker from 2005 to 2016. Jannine Rickards filled the position until Martin Bell, winemaker at Giesen in Marlborough took over at the start of this year, in time for the 2018 vintage. Martin brings with him a wealth of industry experience and a desire to get back to "hands-on” winemaking. Viticulturist Derek Mitchell has just moved on to manage a larger vineyard operation, and Julicher has just taken on Kyra Day to tend the vineyards. The industry is ever-changing! www.juicher.co.nz
