te Pa Marlborough 2018 Rosé, Sauvignon and Pinot Gris, and 2017 Chardonnay and ‘Oke’

19-Nov-2018

The te Pa brand of the MacDonald family led by Haysley MacDonald has made a remarkable entry into the marketplace.  The wines are based on vineyards on the Wairau Bar in Marlborough, where the MacDonalds have been based and farmed for generations.  The company has grown and diversified their vineyard sources so that they also access fruit from throughout Marlborough, giving them a degree of insurance against vulnerability from localised weather events, but also the ability to blend for greater completeness in the wines.  Sam Bennett is the winemaker at te Pa Family Vineyards, and he has grown in confidence along with the progress made by the company.  Here, I review the new release 2018 Pinot Noir Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, and 2017  Chardonnay and oak-influenced ‘Oke’ Sauvignon Blanc.  www.tepawines.com
