Ceres 2013 Riesling, 2012 Pinot Gris and 2011 Pinot Noir

28-Jan-2014
The Ceres wine brand is a collaboration of the Dicey brothers’ families in growing and making wines that reflect their Central Otago vineyards and the vintages they experience there. Between viticulturist James and winemaker Matt, there is over 35 years of experience, and no doubt they can call upon the expertise of their father Robin, who has had a profound influence in the establishment of the Central Otago vignoble as it is today. The Ceres wines are based on the ‘Inlet’, ‘Black Rabbit’, ‘Full Circle’ and ‘Swansong’ vineyards, all in the Bannockburn sub-region. Ceres operate another label, ‘Fifth Bridge’, which incorporates fruit from other vineyards, situated in the Cromwell Basin. I’ve followed the Ceres wines from the first releases and I can see a growing consistency and indications of the top quality that are in other wines that the family are involved with appearing in subsequent releases. This should be a label to watch, as the Dicey’s maximise the potential of their vines and vineyards. Here, I review the new 2013 Riesling, 2012 Pinot Gris and 2011 Pinot Noir. www.cereswines.co.nz
