Thistle Ridge Waipara Chardonnay 2014

The Thomas family has a distinct portfolio of brands that showcases different aspects of the Waipara Valley. ‘Greystone’ is the original premium label that represents the Waipara Valley regional style, with the Greystone site and house signature of finesse coming through clearly. The Thomas family purchased ‘Muddy Water’ in 2011 and have emphasised its certified organic status, and the wines are certainly more individual and adventurous, and maybe stylistically a little funky. The new brand is ‘Thistle Ridge’ which offers the consumer greater accessibility in drinking as well as in value terms. With the release of the Thistle Ridge wines came instant wine show success, indicating the quality of the fruit. Here, I review the new release 2014 Chardonnay, from a challenging vintage.
