Waiprara River Estate SVR 2011 Riesling and 2014 Pinot Noir

Waipara River Estate is the wine operation of Michael Peters and Tina Besley who purchased the former Glenmark Wines. The 3 ha of vines in ‘The Original Vineyard’ are over 30 y.o. and are some of the districts oldest plantings. The vineyard is part of a 32 ha multi-faceted business which is a pastoral farm with B&B accommodation and a function venue. Kym Rayner has been their contracted winemaker since 2009, but in 2013, Theo Coles and Mat Donaldson were also involved. Here, I have a re-look at the 2011 ‘SVR’ Riesling with some more bottle age, and review the 2014 ‘SVR’ Pinot Noir, both made by Kym Rayner. www.waiparariver.com
