Tasting Notes

About the producer from Raymond Chan: "The GeorgeTown Vineyard label shot to fame when the 2007 Pinot Noir was awarded the Champion Exhibition Red Wine Trophy at the 2009 Air New Zealand Wine Awards. However the quantity of wine from the vineyard is tiny, as indicated by the ‘Exhibition' status of the trophy, reserved for limited production wines, with only of 50 dozen (two 225 litre barrels worth) needing to be available. Ian Dee and Marianne Sonner purchased the 1.5 ha vineyard at the entrance to the Kawarau Gorge, 6 km from Cromwell, because of its unique site with 7,100 close-planted Pinot Noir vines. The clones 777, 5, 667, 115 and 114 were planted by the late Gary Andrus in 2002, with the first vintage of GeorgeTown being the trophy winning 2007. Ian tends the vineyard which is now under organic regimes, and certification is the aim for the near future."

    I poured this at a rose tasting recently, and this bottle was definitely pleaser with the crowd. Not only is the price point fantastic, but this is a great quality pinot noir rose for under 20 bones. It's crisp, the acidity is well balanced, and it's just a great bottle of sipping on a hot summer day.
