Mahana 2013 Riesling and 2012 Pinot Noir

27-Mar-2014
A visit at the start of the month with Shane Munn at Woollaston Estates in the Upper Moutere confirmed the rapid progress being made at this Nelson winegrowing operation. The vineyards have clearly achieved a level of balance that has resulted in consistently high quality fruit, and Shane is coming to understand their performance. (Click here to see my report on my visit.) The differentiation of wines into the top progressive ‘Mahana’ tier is becoming clearer, as Shane is building greater interest, complexity and textures into these wines. Here, I review the new release 2013 dry Riesling and 2012 Pinot Noir which demonstrate the advances. www.woollaston.co.nz
