Little Wing Waiheke Island Syrah 2016

13-Jun-2018

Little Wing is the Waiheke Island label of Gillian and Gareth McLachlan, both viticulture and oenology graduates, the former from California, and the latter from New Zealand, who decided to make Rhone-styled wines in New Zealand after working in different wine regions of the world. In 2014, they purchased a nearly abandoned oceanfront vineyard in Oneroa on Waiheke Island and have been reviving the property and vines and replanting new areas. There are now 2 ha planted, 70% to Syrah with some Marsanne and Viognier. The vines are close-planted at 6,500 plants per ha. Gillian and Gareth tend to the viticulture personally and employ organic regimes. The wine is made on site. They have released a Syrah, Marsanne/Viognier, Rosé of Syrah and a methode ancestrale. www.facebook.com/littlewingvineyard
