Waipara Hills Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

15-Nov-2017

Established in 2001, Waipara Hills is one of the quality wine producers of the Waipara Valley. The brand champions with wines of the region, but as one of the Accolade Wines brands, it can access Marlborough and Central Otago fruit to supplement and broaden the range of Waipara Valley bottlings. The Waipara wines are under the ‘Waipara Hills’ and limited release ‘Equinox’ tiers. Andrew Brown is the winemaker, coming from Framingham in Marlborough where he was assistant winemaker, taking over from Simon McGeorge last year. Simon had been with the company since 2006 and was responsible for a host of top award winning wines. The Waipara vineyard manager is Jean-Luc Dufour, with Waipara Hills from the start. 2016 was an excellent year in Waipara, the dry weather in autumn enabling an exceptionally hang-time for the fruit.
