Fancrest Estate Waipara Pinot Noir 2011

09-Oct-2012

Tasting every vintage made of Fancrest Estate Pinot Noir, from 2007 to 2010 in October last year, I wrote "this is a Waipara Valley producer to follow”. (Click here to read my reviews.) Fancrest Estate is the passion of Diane and Ian Holding who have a 5.4 ha vineyard planted in 2003 to Pinot Noir and a little Pinot Gris on limestone soil. They do everything themselves, including making the wine on-site in order to have strict control in all aspects of grapegrowing and winemaking. Diane paid particular attention to the tannin management this 2011 vintage. She battled through adversity in making this wine as she broke her leg in March, necessitating bottling the wine two months later than normal. The wine is coming up for release. www.fancrest.com
