Gladstone Vineyard and 12,000 Miles New Releases

18-Oct-2013
The ’12,000 Miles’ second tier of Gladstone Vineyard represents the distance to Scotland where the Kernohans have their roots, as well as their journey in making as well as selling wine. It’s a good foil to the premium ‘Gladstone Vineyard’ label, offering greater accessibility in terms of style and price. Of course, the second tier has benefitted from the continued development and inputs from the top label. Here, I review the latest ‘12,000 Miles’ release, the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, as well as the 2011 Gladstone Vineyard Pinot Noir, which I saw at a vertical tasting of vintages 2005 to 2011 in March this year (click here to see). The 2013 wine has the input of Alexis Moore, new winemaker working with Christine Kernohan, whereas the 2011 wine was with the work of Gerhard Smith who has now returned to South Africa. www.gladstonevineyard.co.nz
