Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ ‘Le Champ’ and 2016 Pinot Gris

05-Apr-2017
Steve and Eileen Voysey deem their Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ range "to be poured with confidence”. The tier is the more affordable and accessible than the ‘Heart of Gold’ and ‘Vigneron’ ranges, but the wines are made with the same degree of thought and care. This can be seen in the new ‘Le Champ’ sparkling. Steve, with his considerable experience in developing ‘Lindauer’, and recently his interest in Prosecco has created ‘Le Champ’ to investigate the Prosecco lower carbonation palate structure, but retain more fruit and have a degree of seriousness. While the wine is all from one vintage and predominantly from one region, these are not the important influences, but incidental to the style. The 2016 Pinot Gris is right down the line, and follows previous releases that have proven to be very successful. Steve now has 30 years of winemaking experience behind him, and with the able support of wife Eileen, any Spade Oak wine is worthy of attention. I review the two new wines here. www.spadeoak.co.nz
