Greenhough New Release 2011 Whites and 2010 Pinot Noir

19-Jun-2012

In 1990, Andrew Greenhough and Jenny Wheeler took over the 4 ha Ranzau vineyard that was originally established at Hope on the Waimea Plains in 1976. Since then, they have expanded the plantings to 11 ha, replanting much of the old material and modernising the winery. However, the original ‘Hope' vineyard still retains Riesling, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc vines which are over 30 years old. Greenhough Wines also sources fruit from long-term growers, including the ‘Morison' vineyard, also in Hope, and the ‘Barraud' site in Upper Moutere. The ‘Hope Vineyard' wines demonstrate the single vineyard characteristics whereas the ‘Vineyards' range focusses on style. However, dedication to quality has seen both of the Greenhough ranges become leaders in the Nelson district. Here are reviews of a selection of the 2011 new release whites and the 2010 Pinot Noir. www.greenhough.co.nz
