Locharburn 2017 Riesling, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc

03-Jan-2018

Locharburn is the 14 ha vineyard winegrowing venture of Chris and Jenny Hill sited on the Cromwell-Luggate highway overlooking the Locharburn stream and Lake Dunstan. They have Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay planted, with their original Riesling vines now grafted to Pinot Noir. Chris and Jenny are fully involved in the business, with Chris tending to the viticulture, and Jenny looking after marketing and branding, in addition to her mixed-media and textile art work. Some of the vineyard yield is sold under contract, and the remainder going into their own label, the first vintage of which was 2005. Jenn Parr is the Hill’s winemaker. Here, I review the new release 2017 Locharburn Riesling, made from fruit from a nearby vineyard by Antony Worch of Alexandra Vintners, and the Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. www.locharburnwines.co.nz
