Mt Beautiful Pinot Gris 2011

09-Feb-2012
It is extremely pleasing to see the progress made with the Mt Beautiful wines and the growth in recognition of the vineyard sited in the Cheviot Hills region of North Canterbury. Pioneering the new vignoble, no matter how suitable the land is to growing grapes is always fraught with issues, including how to marketing the district. However David and Leigh Teece have had the skills of Fin Grieve managing the vineyard and veteran winemaker Sam Weaver in crafting wines that have brought focus to their origins. The inaugural 2009 Pinot Gris was an extremely successful wine in that sense as well as in quality, and the new 2011 release will be much anticipated, there being no 2010 wine made.
