Silver Wing 2012 Pinot Gris and 2011 Reserve Pinot Noir

At the end of October I reviewed a selection of Silver Wing wines from Andrew Fox, based in the Waipara Valley (click here to see). Following a period of working for other producers in New Zealand and internationally, he set up Silver Wing by forming fruit supply contracts and renting winery space in Waipara in 2010, to make his first own wines from the 2011 vintage. Andrew’s wines are certainly winemakers’ wines in that he is not shy in utilising positive inputs, while respecting the fruit. Understanding Andrew’s approach and how they are made helps in appreciating them. Here, I review his 2012 Pinot Gris and 2011 ‘Reserve’ Pinot Noir.
