Tupari 2013 Dry Riesling and Pinot Gris

Tupari is the artisan upper Awatere Valley vineyard and winegrowing venture established by David Turnbull and winemaker Glenn Thomas. The Tupari vineyard was planted in 2002 on the site of an old apple orchard with a favourable northerly aspect. The different varieties are planted to different sections and soils. Sauvignon Blanc is planted on the ‘Boulder Block’ and ‘Camper Flat’ areas, Pinot Noir on clay-influenced gravels, with Pinot Gris and Riesling on top of a cliff face. David’s daughter Olivia is responsible for sales. David’s son Heath manages the vineyard with him, and Heath’s wife Eliza is responsible for marketing. Glenn Thomas, one of the pioneering Awatere winemakers oversees the winemaking. Only approx. 2,500 cases are made annually. Here, I review the new 2013 Dry Riesling and Pinot Gris. www.tupari.co.nz
