Alana Estate Riesling 2011

02-Feb-2012
Well-established as a destination, Alana Estate is familiar to many people as an outstanding concert venue with a natural amphitheatre for acoustics, and having a restaurant serving satisfying fare. Occupying 17 ha of prime land on the Martinborough Terrace, Alana Estate has the resource and potential to produce top flight Martinborough wine, and from the first vintage in 1997, a number of excellent wines have been released showing that quality can be realised. With the arrival of Pete Wilkins as CEO late last year and Alex Craighead in the winemaker role recently, consistency and direction should take a step up. Pete, with a highly experienced background as viticulturist with Martinborough Vineyard and Craggy Range will oversee the conversion of the vineyards to biological viticulture. www.alana.co.nz
