Summerhouse 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, and 2017 Chardonnay

16-Aug-2018

The ‘Summerhouse’ brand was acquired by Spring Creek Vintners who began releasing wines with the label from the start of 2014. The wines are complementary to the company’s well known Rapaura Springs wines, and also are sourced from the different sub-regions of Marlborough. There have been a number of limited release wines, some with innovative varieties and in sophisticated styles. An interpretation is that they have a more ‘European style’. The wines were originally designed for the on-premise market, but they are seen in a wider range of channels now. And recently, the decision to expand the source of the wines has been made with wines from Hawke’s Bay and Central Otago added to the range. GM of winemaking and viticulture, Gus Altshwager, winemaker Michael Bann and viticulturist Simon Bowers now have the support of consultant winemaker Matt Thomson, and one can expect the trend towards more interesting wines to continue. www.summerhouse.co.nz
