Maori Point 2018 Central Otago Pinot Noir Rosé and Pinot Gris

21-Aug-2018

Maori Point Vineyard was established by John Harris and Marilyn Duxson in 2002 who planted 5 clones of Pinot Noir and 2 clones of Pinot Gris across 7.3 ha on a bend of the Clutha River north of Bendigo near Tarras. Matt and Maggie Evans joined the business in 2014, following Matt working there from 2011. The soils are loess over schist deposited by the Lake Hawea glacier around 200,000 years ago, and are very low in fertility. It is surmised that this results in lower yields of grapes with greater concentration. Although all the partners have an academic background, they are hands-on with the viticulture which is to organic regimes, though they are not certified. The wines are made on site which is regarded important for quality and style. Here, I review the new 2018 Pinot Noir Rosé and Pinot Gris. www.maoripoint.com
