Nevis Bluff ‘Duke of Cromwell’ Pinot Blanc 2017, and 2017 Rosé, 2014 Pinot Gris and 2013 Pinot Noir

07-Mar-2018

Nevis Bluff is a Central Otago producer who call themselves ‘Pinot Specialists’ as the portfolio is based on variations of Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. The brand is named after a jagged rocky outcrop at the eastern end of the Gibbston Valley near where the original shareholders established a vineyard in 1993. The company is now owned by Graham Wilkinson, and Merrill and John Holdsworth, part of the original consortium who now source fruit totally from 2016 from their own ‘L’Attitude’ vineyard in the Pisa sub-region, near Cromwell. The vineyard is under the care of Ian Cunliffe, and the wines are made by veteran Central Otago winemaker Dean Shaw at the Central Otago Wine Co. Here, I review the Nevis Bluff 2017 Rosé, 2014 Pinot Gris and 2013 Pinot Noir, and the 2017 Duke of Cromwell Pinot Blanc, an occasionally-made brand. www.nevisbluff.co.nz
