Locharburn 2012 Riesling and 2011 Chardonnay

12-Sep-2013
Having tasted several vintages of Chris and Jenny Hill’s Locharburn wines, I realise they show a distinctive firmness and depth that requires some bottle age to soften and show their full potential. The fruit is exemplary and the quality of the wines is high, attesting to the care and attention the Hills give to the vines on their 14 ha ‘Locharburn’ site on terraces at Lowburn, overlooking Lake Dunstan. Jen Parr of Terra Sancta assumed the winemaking with the 2012 vintage from Carol Bunn who crafted the wines from the inaugural 2005 releases. Here, I review the new 2012 Riesling and 2011 Chardonnay. www.locharburnwines.co.nz
