Catherine’s Block from Mount Brown

28-Feb-2013

The ‘Catherine's Block' wines are the limited release expressions from Mount Brown in the Waipara Valley. The owners are Tony Rutherford and daughter Catherine (Kate) Keith who from the original ‘Mount Brown' site purchased around a decade ago, have expanded by establishing the ‘Limeloader' site in 2007 with 35 ha, including planting Tempranillo, then last year purchasing the ‘Weka Gravels' block with vines existing. The experienced Frank Manifold joined as the full-time winemaker from 2013 and Andrew Florance the vineyard manager since 2011. Matt Deller, while Wine Program Manager for the Fine Wine Delivery Co. consulted in some of the production aspects of this first release, and it comes as no surprise that they are available through that company. www.finewinedelivery.co.nz Here are my reviews of the wines. www.catherinesblock.com
