Ngatarawa ‘Glazebrook’ 2014 Hawke’s Bay Releases

28-May-2015
Ngatarawa was established in 1981 by Alwyn Corban, scion of the pioneering Lebanese winemaking family in Auckland, and the Glazebrook family who were and are recognised Hawke’s Bay farmers. Ngatarawa signalled the growth of the boutique wine producer phenomenon in New Zealand, and nowadays it is one of Hawke’s Bay’s most respected and popular wineries. The company draws most of its fruit from estate vineyards in the Bridge Pa Triangle area, and the wines are made by Peter Gough who has been at Ngatarawa since 1993.

The flagship wines are the limited edition ‘Alwyn’ range, while the ‘Stables’ tier is the most widely seen, with nationwide FMCG coverage. A ‘Proprietors Reserve’ tier has just been introduced (click here to see my reviews), fitting under the ‘Alwyn’ wines but above the ‘Glazebrook’ bottlings. The ‘Glazebrook’ wines are the elegant and contemporary expressions showing varietal and regional expression. The regional aspect is reinforced by the map co-ordinates of the origin of the wines featured prominently on the front label. Here, I review a selection of the 2014 Hawke’s Bay ‘Glazebrook’ wines. www.ngatarawa.co.nz
