Snow Bird South Island Pinot Noir 2016

24-Aug-2017
Snow Bird is a secondary label for Ostler Vineyards based in the Waitaki Valley. With winemaker Jeff Sinnott involved in other projects in different parts of the country, he has been able to obtain different parcels of Pinot Noir to blend to produce a flavoursome, approachable wine. The wine incorporates sophisticated techniques such as whole bunch fermentation, the use of open and closed fermenters, and different oak options. Here, I review the inaugural release, a blend of Waipara Valley and Waitaki Valley fruit from the 2016 vintage. www.snowbird.co,nz
