Black Barn’s Bold Wine Range

15-Sep-2011
The wines from Black Barn in the Havelock Hills area of Hawke's Bay have a much greater reputation than its production from just over 10 ha of vineyard might suggest. Part of this can be attributable to the popularity of the bistro on site, the various luxury accommodation retreats, grower's market, art exhibitions and events that draw a large and diverse number of people to visit. But among wine enthusiasts, it is the quality of the wines that has gained respect for the label. Winemaker Dave McKee has two decades of experience, much of his trade learnt at Church Road, and has made the wine at Black Barn since 2002. It is his thoughtful and meticulous approach and attention to detail that has resulted in a bold, strong range of very different wines and styles that have a dedicated following. The wines are limited in production, not quite micro-cuvees, but certainly hand-crafted. www.blackbarn.com
