Te Kairanga 2018 Rosé and Pinot Gris, and 2017 Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs

27-Aug-2018

Established in 1984, Te Kairanga is one of Martinborough’s largest winegrowers with over 100 ha of vineyards including the ‘Home’ and ‘McLeod’ sites on the Martinborough Terrace, the ‘Spring Rock’ vineyard north of Longbush and the ‘Ruakokoputuna’ vineyard south of Te Muna. The different locations and terroirs give winemaker John Kavanagh considerable options in blending when making his wines. Dave Shepherd has been steadily working on the viticulture, and one can see the continued improvements of this label since its ownership by Foley Family Wines in 2011. Here, I review the new release 2018 Pinot Noir Rosé and Pinot Gris, and 2017 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all in the ‘Estate’ tier, plus the 2017 ‘Runholder’ Pinot Noir. www.tkwine.co.nz
