Thomas Waiheke 2016 Rose, 2015 Blanc de Gris, and 2014 Franc Blend and Cabernet

The Batch Winery on Waiheke Island is one of the newer winery additions, established by the Thomas family from Canada. Purchasing and rejuvenating an already planted vineyard, they have set up on-site a restaurant, cellar door and winery on Carson’s Road. The design is that of a modern ‘bach’ to evoke a holiday atmosphere, and the wines are small batch editions (puns are great!). A diverse range of wines is crafted by winemaker Daniel Struckman. Recently, Batch Winery has released the ‘Thomas’ and ‘Thomas Legacy’ wines to represent the more serious and sophisticated style which complement the more accessible ‘Thomas’s Bach’, ‘Fizz’ and ‘Batch Winery’ labels. I was impressed with the first release of the ‘Thomas’ wine when I reviewed them in February last year (click here to see my reviews). Here I review a rosé, sparkling wine and two reds under the ‘Thomas’ brand. www.batchwinery.com
