Cable Bay 2014 Awatere Valley Pinot Gris and Chardonnay

12-Jan-2015
Since Cable Bay was purchased by Loukas Petrou in 2012, the Waiheke Island based operation has undergone further restructuring and growth. Neill Culley, one of the original partners and winemaker, left the business late last year, and Chloe Parkinson, Neill’s assistant for two years has stepped into the winemaker role. The Waiheke Island vineyard, winery, cellar door and restaurant remains the home, but the company purchased a vineyard on Redwood Pass Road in the Awatere Valley in 2013, consolidating its position as a serious Marlborough wine producer as well. The vineyard is tended by Bart Arnst. A new ‘Awatere Valley Range’ has been introduced, and here, I review the first releases, a Pinot Gris and Chardonnay from the 2014 vintage. www.cablebay.co.nz
