Carrick Sauvignon Blanc 2012 & Chardonnay 2010

18-Dec-2012

Original vineyard partners with Mt Difficulty, Steve Green and Barbara Robertson are among the most respected people in the Central Otago wine scene. Steve is the newly appointed Chairman of New Zealand Winegrowers. Following their involvement with Mt Difficulty, Steve and Barbara started their own venture, Carrick, based on their vineyard in the Cairnmuir area of Bannockburn, and it is now a stalwart, in the top echelon of producers in the district. The vineyard was first planted in 1993, and on site is one of the relatively rare wineries in Central Otago, the majority of other wine made at contract facilities. Steve and Barbara have fostered a number of high profile winemakers who have remained in in the vignoble. Francis Hutt is the incumbent, taking over from Jane Docherty in 2010. Longstanding viticulturist is Blair Deaker who with Francis, have guided Carrick to certified BioGro organic status. Steve and Barbara continue their fine production of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Rosé and Pinot Noir, and here are my reviews of the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc and 2010 Chardonnay. www.carrick.c.nz
