Fifth Bridge and Charcoal Gully Central Otago Wine

19-Jul-2013
The Bespoke Wine Company in Central Otago markets a number of brands and labels where the wines come from fruit from vines under the care of Grape Vision, the viticultural consultancy company of James Dicey. Included in the portfolio is ‘Fifth Bridge’, a collection of wines made specifically for the Bespoke Wine Company, the fruit sourced from the Cromwell Basin. The name refers to the fifth bridge between Bannockburn and Cromwell. ‘Charcoal Gully’ is the label of Brian and Cheryll Sanders who have 9 ha of vines, comprising 7 ha of Pinot Noir and 2 ha Gewurztraminer in their vineyard in the Pisa district. ‘Sallys Pinch’ refers to an imposing rockface near the summit of Mt Pisa. The Charcoal Gully wines are made by Peter Bartle at VinPro. www.charcoalgully.co.nz Here, I review the new 2012 aromatic whites and 2011 Pinot Noirs from Fifth Bridge and Charcoal Gully. www.bespokewines.co.nz
