Volcanic Hills 2015 Pinot Gris and Rosé, and 2014 Pinot Noirs

The ‘Volcanic Hills’ brand of winemakers Sean Beer and Brent Park is unusually based in Rotorua where they have their winery and operate a tasting room facility at the ‘Skyline’ gondola. Originally working for Delegats, they envisaged operating a ‘virtual winery’ sourcing fruit from around the country and having it made at custom crush facilities. However the opportunity of setting up in a large urban site has brought them closer to a captive market, and allowed their families live closer to ‘civilisation’. They have now completed three full harvests at the Rotorua winery and the current annual production is 4,500 cases.  Besides the cellar door, their wines are sold mail order and on-premise. Here, I review the new Volcanic Hills summer releases. www.volcanichills.co.nz
