Pisa Range Estate 2014 Riesling and ‘Run 245’ Pinot Noir

02-Jul-2015
Established in 1995, the 33 ha ‘Pisa Range Estate’ vineyard of Warwick and Jenny Hawker is one of the earliest planted in the Pisa district. The vineyard produces the very successful ‘Black Poplar Block’ Pinot Noir from the hillside terraces, while newer plantings on the flatter blocks have proven to be very promising. Here, I review the new 2014 Riesling from 1.5 ha of vines, first yielding in 2012, and the second tier ‘Run 245’ Pinot Noir from younger Dijon clone vines, around 10 y.o. The wines are made by Rudi Bauer, of Quartz Reef, who has made all of the Pisa Range Estate wines. www.pisarangeestate.co.nz
