Te Maire Rise Martinborough Pinot Noir 2010

01-Dec-2011
I find the determination of those who invest in the produce of the land inspirational. Judy Dell and Griff Page have 0.75 ha of Dijon clone Pinot Noir planted on Te Maire Road, between Martinborough and Featherston and have begun to release wine under the ‘Te Maire Rise' label, the wine made by Chris Buring at Oak House. I reviewed the 2009 vintage wine in June this year. (Click here to view.) 2010 was a vintage where the perennial problem of birds took the upper hand and decimated the crop. Judy and Griff have persevered and made a minuscule amount of wine, with the intent of progressing the style. Working with the cooler vintage fruit, the oak regime incorporates newer barrels. My review follows. For more information or availability, contact Griff Page on Tel: 06 308-6207
