Schubert ‘Marion’s Vineyard’ Pinot Noir 2013

Coming from Germany after a search around the world for an ideal region to make world class Pinot Noir, Kai Schubert and Marion Deimling established Schubert Wines in the Wairarapa in 1998, purchasing a small established block on the Martinborough Terrace, then planting a larger 40 ha vineyard on Dakins Road, Gladstone. From the outset, the quality of the wines has been noteworthy, placing their label in the upper echelon of quality producers. Nevertheless, Kai is a tireless ambassador for their wines, constantly travelling the world promoting them. As a result, around 90% of the production is exported. The two wines which carry ‘flagship’ status are the ‘Marion’s Vineyard’ and ‘Block B’ Pinot Noirs, the former more ‘feminine’ and the latter more powerful. They are wonderful foils for each other. Here, I review the 2013 ‘Marion’s Vineyard’ Pinot Noir, which has a beguiling burgundian style.
