Yealands Estate ‘Single Vineyard’ 2016 Riesling and 2015 Pinot Noir

04-Oct-2016
It is incredible how such a large winegrowing operation such as Yealands Estate has attained the high standards of sustainability and Carbon Zero certification through their focussed philosophies of environmental concern. It is a showcase for the New Zealand industry and a showcase for the rest of the world. As with all large wine producers, Yealands Estate also produces smaller lots of wine aiming at high quality and the capturing of special characteristics of the sites where the fruit originates for the wines. These are the ‘Single Vineyard’ wines for Yealands, their production overseen by winemaker Jeff Fyfe. (Tamra Washington-Kelly made the 2015 wines but is now on maternity leave, retaining a Consultant Winemaker role.) Here, I review the 2016 Riesling and 2015 Pinot Noir under the ‘Single Vineyard tier. www.yealands.co.nz
