Bristol Farm

22-Jul-2019
Bristol Farm is the wine venture of intellectual property lawyer and Pinot Noir lover, Wayne Condon, a Kiwi resident in Victoria, Australia.  Wayne has harboured a 30 year obsession with the variety and actually made 10 vintages of wine under the Bristol Farm label from fruit from a vineyard just outside Melbourne.  But Wayne’s desire was to make New Zealand wine and he teamed up with winemaker Brendan Seal in Central Otago to make a wine from fruit from Chinaman’s Terrace in Bendigo in 2013.  From the 2014 vintage on, Wayne and Brendan have contracted fruit from a single site in Bannockburn, with clone 667, 777, 115, 5 and Abel fruit planted in 2002.  The wine is intended primarily for the Australian market, but some will be released in New Zealand.  The 2013 and 2014 vintages will be made available, with a possibility of a one-dozen pack with three bottles each of the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.  Here, I review all four wines. www.bristolfarm.com.au
