Moy Hall Martinborough Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir Releases

18-Dec-2018

Moy Hall Wines is the Martinborough venture of Phill and Carolyn McArthur who in 2015 purchased the 8 ha vineyard on Martins Road that was established in 1991. The vineyard has undergone replanting, in 2001 and 2005 with new clonal material. It was previously owned by Lintz Estate, then Burnt Spur and Martinborough Vineyard, where Phill has worked several years as assistant winemaker to Paul Mason. Phill has had a role supporting both Paul Mason and John Kavanagh at Te Kairanga under the Foley Wines for 2016 and 2017, but has stepped back to a more part-time role to concentrate on this venture. The varieties planted are Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Viognier, Pinot Noir and Syrah, and these have been used to make both varietal and style wines including rosé and noble rot bottlings. The Moy Hall wines are single vineyard wines, and the McArthurs have just opened a cellar door at the Martins Road site. The wines are made at local winery facilities. Here, I review a range of the new release wines; the 2018 and 2017 Rosé and Sauvignon Blancs, the 2017 Pinot Gris, and 2017 ‘Terrace’ and ‘Moy Hall’ Pinot Noir. www.moyhall.nz
