The Landing 2018 Bay of Islands Rosé and Pinot Gris

20-Aug-2018

The Landing Vineyard is part of a multi-tiered integrated property developed by investment executive Peter Cooper, occupying 400 ha on the south-western tip of the Purerua Peninsula in the Bay of Islands. The 9 ha vineyard was established in 2007 and is planted to Chardonnay, Syrah, Merlot, Pinot Gris, Sangiovese, Montepulciano and Malbec. The vineyard comes under the care of viticulturist Andrew Hull and the wines made by Rod McIvor at Marsden Estate. To date, the first wines of Chardonnay and Syrah have been impressive, and the inaugural Pinot Gris from the challenging 2017 vintage was of very high quality (click here to see my review). This is a label to take seriously. Here, I review the new 2018 Rosé and Pinot Gris which come from a season in which earlier picking was prudent. www.thelandingnz.com
