Locharburn Central Otago 2017 Chardonnay and 2016 Pinot Noir

27-Feb-2018

Chris and Jenny Hill operate ‘Locharburn’, a 14 ha vineyard sited overlooking the Locharburn stream and Lake Dunstan on the Cromwell-Luggate highway. They have Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay planted. Chris and Jenny are dedicated to the vineyard, with Chris tending to the viticulture, and Jenny the marketing and administration, which is in addition to her mixed-media and textile art work. While they contract fruit out, they take pride in their own label which was launched in 2004. They have the talented Jen Parr as their contracted winemaker going forward, having made their wines previously. Here, I review the 2017 Chardonnay, made by Jen, and the 2016 Pinot Noir.made by Jody Pagey at Terra Sancta. www.locharburnwines.co.nz
