Clark Estate 2013 Aromatic White Wine Release

04-Oct-2013
A label to take note of is that of Clark Estate, the winegrowing operation of Peter and Jane Clar,k and their son Simon and daughter Sarah who tend their upper Awatere Valley vineyard planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Riesling. Simon, who trained in the Mosel region in Germany is responsible for the viticulture and winemaker while Sarah looks after sales and marketing. The 2011 vintage wines were especially successful (click here to see my reviews), and the 2012s, while a little quieter, added to the foundation of the brand. Here, I review the new 2013 aromatic white releases and have a re-look at the 2012 ‘Block 8’ Riesling. www.clarkestate.com
