Three Miners Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

14-Jun-2018

Three Miners is the Alexandra winegrowing venture of Paul and Kirstin Wright, Paul formerly a quantity surveyor and Kirstin a research scientist at Lincoln University. They acquired the 16.8 ha vineyard in the Earnscleugh Valley in October 2014. The vineyard was established by Jeff Price and Julie Mitchell, who planted Pinot Noir, adding more Pinot Noir in 2002, then Pinot Gris Riesling and Gewurztraminer in 2003. They further added Pinot Gris again in 2007 and 2009. The Pinot Noir clones employed are 10/5, 5, 6, 7,114, 115, 667, 743, and 777. The label is named after Thomas Oliver, Joseph Knowles and James Simmondswho were pioneers in the district during the gold rush of the 1860s. The Wrights have Gary Crabbe as their viticulturist and Pete Bartle of VinPro as their winemaker. Here, I review the 2016 Pinot Noir. www.threeminers.com
