Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ 2017 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris

09-Oct-2017
Steve and Eileen Voysey of Spade Oak in Gisborne are making a strong portfolio of adventurous and innovative wine. Steve is a very experienced winemaker with over 25 vintages under his belt, working with New Zealand’s largest wine companies, as well as making limited edition boutique wines. His art and craft can be seen in knowledgeable fruit election, the sensitive use of blending and measured vinification techniques in making the Spade Oak wines. This can be seen especially in their ‘Heart of Gold’ tier where emerging varieties, complex blends and sophisticated styles are bottled. The techniques in this ‘mid’ tier are used in the top ‘Vigneron’ range where quality is of the utmost importance, but also in the accessible ‘Voysey’ range, to make these wines more detailed and interesting from the norm. Here, I review the new release 2017 ‘Voysey’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Gisborne Pinot Gris. www.spadeoak.co.nz
