Lowburn Ferry ‘Skeleton Creek’ Pinot Noir 2011

21-Aug-2013
‘Skeleton’ Creek’ is the second tier of the ‘Lowburn Ferry’ brand of Roger and Jean Gibson who planted 3.5 ha of Pinot Noir on their 35 ha property overlooking the site of the Lowburn Ferry crossing near Cromwell. Skeleton Creek was the site of a gold diggers’ stopover on the pack track crossing the Pisa Range from Lowburn Ferry to Cardrona in the late 1800s. The wine, made by Peter Bartle at VinPro shares the same style as the very successful premium ‘Home Block’ Lowburn Ferry label, but is more accessible. I reviewed the ‘Home Block’ Pinot Noir 2011 in September last year, in a youthful stage (click here to see), and here I review the ‘Skeleton Creek’ Pinot Noir 2011. www.lowburnferry.co.nz
