Peter Yealands New Releases

The phrase "think boldly, tread lightly” of Peter Yealands rings true of his vision to develop the Seaview district of the Awatere Valley into one of this country’s most significant winegrowing areas while adhering to sustainability and environmentally-friendly processes. Purchasing land in the Awatere from 2001, but establishing Yealands Family Wines in August 2008, Peter was involved personally in re-contouring the land for vineyard area, and now, the Seaview region is now a sea of vines that stretches as far as the eye can see with over 1,000 ha of plantings. Yealands is proud of its carboNZero certification and working regimes that respect the land. The phrase carries through to the development of new wine styles that are aimed at making their way effectively onto the marketplace. Here, I review a selection of the core ‘Peter Yealands’ new releases, all of a very enviable standard.
