The Ramsay 2015 Central Otago Chardonnay and Pinot Noir


Ramsay Wines is the venture of Duncan and Fiona Ramsay who established in 2001 their vineyard in the Parkburn district in the Cromwell Basin with the assistance of Greg Hay. They planted 12.5 ha to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, and first cropped commercially in 2006, subsequently selling contracted fruit to the likes of Peregrine, Rockburn and Craggy Range, and more recently to Matua, Peregrine, Wooing Tree, Matt Connell Wines and Wet Jacket. The Ramsays made their own first wine in 2014, from the 2016 vintage (click here to see my reviews), contracting Dean Shaw at COWCO until the 2016 vintage, after which Matt Connell took over. Sean Guildford is the general manager and viticulturist, working with the vineyard since 2005; he resides on the property. The label acknowledges the Ramsay’s Scottish heritage and the long association between Scotland and Central Otago. Here I review the 2015 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, to be released next.
