Ruru Central Otago 2017 Rosé and ‘Reserve’ Pinot Gris

27-Oct-2017
Taking ownership of an established vineyard on Airport Road in Alexandra, Central Otago in 2012, Lucienne and Roland van der Wal established their own brand with the wines, firstly under the ‘Plovers Nest’, then changing to ‘Ruru’ named after the owl (in Maori) which often visits their site. Their 20 ha is planted to 15.5 ha of Pinot Noir, 4.0 ha of Pinot Gris and 0.5 ha of Gewurztraminer. While they tend to the viticulture, they have their wines made by Antony Worch at the Alexandra Vintners facility. Here’ I review the 2017 Rosé and the ‘Reserve’ Pinot Gris. www.immigrantsvineyard.co.nz
