The Landing Bay of Islands 2016 and 2015 Chardonnay, and 2015 – 2013 Syrah

27-Sep-2017
The Landing is the vision of Peter Cooper, an investment executive who has developed a multi-tiered 400 ha property at the south-western tip of the Purerua Peninsula in the Bay of Islands, with six private beaches, a vineyard, wetlands and four luxury accommodation residences. The vineyard is 9 ha and was established in 2007 with Chardonnay and Syrah. Merlot, Pinot Gris, Sangiovese, Malbec, Montepulciano and Malbec have been recently added. Andrew Hull is the viticulturist and Keith Barker the vineyard manager. The wines are made at the nearby Marsden Estate facility by Rod MacIvor. The Chardonnay wines have been awarded gold medals and the Syrah high acclaim by critics to date. Here, I review the 2016 and 2015 Chardonnays, and 2015 – 2013 Syrahs. Rod MacIvor reports that all of the vintages were favourable, with 2015 the pick of them based on greater ripeness. www.thelandingnz.com
