Sugar Loaf 2016 Marlborough Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

The Sugar Loaf brand is that of Kate Acland, one of the new wave of young winemakers making small lots of classical Marlborough wine with her own interpretation. The name ‘Sugar Loaf refers to the islands off her Taranaki home, but nowadays she and her husband reside and run a farm in Mt Somers, Canterbury. Along with raising a young family, she operates the Sugar Loaf winery in the Rapaura district where she makes her own wines, as well as others under contract, and tends her own vineyard. Life is pretty busy for Kate! I’ve reviewed her wines several times over the years, and see that she is incorporating more sophistication into their style. Here, I review the 2016 Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. They retain brightness and fresh fruitiness. www.sugarloafwines.co.nz
