Carrick – Central Otago Core

01-Jul-2013
The Carrick vineyards of Steve Green and Barbara Robertson were established in 1993, and with much of the plant material approaching two decades of maturity, the fruit is consistent in its quality. Viticulturist Blair Deaker brought the vineyards to full certified BioGro organic status and this process along with the increased detail and care has seen the wines show the benefit of conversion. Coming from Martinborough, Francis Hutt assisted in the viticulture and in the winery assuming full responsibility for the winemaking on the departure of Jane Docherty, and finished off the 2011 vintage wines, and making the 2012s from the ground up. Here I review three wines made from the core varieties established by Steve and Barbara at the start of their winegrowing journey, with the input of Francis Hutt. www.carrick.co.nz
