Wrights Vineyard 2013 Releases

19-Jun-2014
Geoff and Nicola Wright are two of the busiest winegrowers in Gisborne. It’s their energy and drive that is admirable, and these qualities have seen the Wrights wine and their subsidiary ‘The Natural Wine Co.’ brand become considerably more prominent in the market of late. They’ve also expanded their vineyard holdings to 45 ha, the ‘Coastal’ vineyard at Manutuke supplementing their ‘Terrace’ and ‘Valley’ vineyards in the Ormond district. The land is certified AsureQuality organic and the Wrights employ biodynamic practices. Though established in 2000, the Wrights winery is new, being built in 2009, and their new cellar door has opened the world to them. To cap off this growth, the Wrights enjoyed 2013 as the best growing season in Gisborne for a number of years. Here, I review releases from this top vintage from Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay. www.wrightswines.co.nz
