Lone Goat Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Pinot Noir Releases

01-Feb-2018

The Lone Goat Vineyard was the original Giesen Canterbury vineyard on Burnham Road established over 30 years ago. It was acquired in 2007 by Matt King and Marion Seyb who named it and their wines after Ella, the original goat on the site. The vineyard is planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling with a little Muller-Thurgau, Ehrenfelser and Pinot Gris, most of the vines of which are ungrafted. Matt, who has over 20 years of wine industry experience, including winemaking with Giesen, makes the wine on site. Around 50 tonnes of fruit are processed to make around 5,500 cases annually. The home vineyard fruit is supplemented by grapes from Marlborough and other Canterbury sites. Here, I review a selection of new releases, bearing stylish new labelling and livery. www.lonegoat.co.nz
