The Better Half 2016 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir

03-Aug-2017
‘The Better Half’ is the wine brand of George Elworthy. George is a winemaker with more than 18 years of experience in Marlborough, and is arguably best known as the founding winemaker at ‘The Crossings’ in the Awatere Valley. George has worked at Seresin Estate, Cloudy Bay, Allan Scott and Vavasour, as well as several vintages in Italy. More recently, he has been supporting his wife Jules Taylor in her winemaking business, though not in the capacity of a winemaker. However, this involvement has led to George establishing his own label ‘The Better Half’, a tongue-in-cheek reference to his relationship with his wife. ‘The Better Half’ wines are made solely by George and vinified as his own unique bottlings, and marketed overseas in the U.S.A. and China, though they may introduced into the domestic market at some time in the near future. Here, I review the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. The both show a firm, ‘masculine’ nature! www.thebetterhalf.co.nz
