Mountford Estate Pinot Noir 2013

21-Dec-2017

Mountford Estate is one of the Waipara Valley’s high profile wineries. The property was established by the Eaton family in 1991 and quickly established a very strong reputation for its Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and aromatic white wines, under the winemaking stewardship of blind Taiwanese-born C. P. Lin. Mountford Estate was purchased by Kathryn Ryan and Kees Zeestraten in 2007, who expanded the 10 ha plantings. Under this ownership, the Mountford wines continued to flourish. C. P. Lin left Mountford in 2013 a little while after the harvest, and earlier this year, Mountford Estate with its 29 ha was purchased by Japanese company Koyama Wines, who intends to expand its production with exports to Japan as the focus. Here, I review the 2013 Mountford ‘Estate’ Pinot Noir vinified by C. P. Lin, but finished by Theo Coles. www.mountfordvineyard.co.nz
