Harris Estate Waipara Pinot Noir 2011

03-May-2013

The Harris Estate label is that of the Daryl and Merree who run Harris Wine and Food, a Mediterranean-style function and event centre in Waipara. The Harris family have farmed in the region for five generations, but set up a Pinot Noir vineyard in 2003 on limestone-influenced soils, planting 2,500 clone 10/5 vines and 500 each of clone 5 and 667 on their own roots. In 2008, a further 4,000 vines of Abel, 5, 943 and 828 clones were added, these cropping in 2012. The Harris family are fully immersed in the Waipara culture with an olive grove and truffiere, and Harris Estate is committed to the Greening of Waipara project. The contracted winemaker is Dom Maxwell of Greystone. www.harriswineandfood.co.nz
