Lynfer Estate – Gladstone Growers Gearing Up

20-Apr-2011
Established in 1999 by the David and Coleen Boyd, Lynfer Estate vineyard has supplied fruit for award winning wines since 2003. ‘Lynfer' is a combination of the names of the Boyd's daughters - Lyndsay and Jennifer. The name and the livery certainly have a Gaelic feel, and suitably reflects David Boyd's Irish background. The 11 ha site is on Dakins Road, the home of several of the leading producers in the region, and the wines are made by the team at Gladstone Vineyard. Based on the quality of the fruit in the wines, this is a label worth following. The next step may be to increase the ripeness of the fruit a little and then be a little more adventurous with the winemaking. www.lynferestate.co.nz
