Ruru 2018 Central Otago Rosé and Pinot Gris


Ruru is the Alexandra Central Otago wine brand of Lucienne and Roland van der Wal who took ownership of an established vineyard on Airport Road in 2012. Their 23 ha property has 16.0 ha of vines which is planted to 10.5 ha of Pinot Noir, 4.0 ha of Pinot Gris, 1.125 ha of Gewurztraminer and 0.375 ha of Chardonnay planted in the winter of 2014 . Lucienne and Roland tend to the viticulture and have their wines primarily made by Antony Worch at Alexandra Vintners. The van der Wals have enjoyed wine show success, rewarding their hard work in the vineyard and the sensitive winemaking. 2018 has seen some interesting developments including the making of a Late Harvest Gewurztraminer, and their first Chardonnay. Here, I review the new 2018 Rosé and Pinot Gris. www.immigrantsvineyard.co.nz
