Locharburn 2018 Central Otago Pinot Rosé and Pinot Gris

17-Sep-2018

Locharburn is the Central Otago winegrowing venture of Chris and Jenny Hill who have a 14 ha vineyard overlooking the Locharburn stream and Lake Dunstan on the Cromwell-Luggate highway. They have Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay planted, and they are both fully involved in the vineyard and management, with Jenny also operating her studio and gallery for her mixed-media and textile art work on-site. The Hills contract fruit out but have their own brand, launched in 2004, the labels bearing Jenny’s art. The wines appear to show the site’s personality of firmness in youth, but blossoming later, giving them good longevity. Jen Parr is the contracted winemaker, and in her inimitable style is subtly building in textures and complexities into the wines. Here, I review the 2018 Pinot Noir Rosé and Pinot Gris. www.locharburnwines.co.nz
