Vynfields Peche de Noire 2013 and Mad Rooster 2012

02-Apr-2014
John Bell and Kaye McAulay have sold Vynfields to Harry and Zinder Guo and their syndicate of family and friends. After 16 years, John and Kaye will hand over the reins at the end of April, but will spend some 6 months involved in the transition. The viticulture and winemaking remains unchanged, with Vynfields continuing to concentrate on different expressions of organic and biodynamic Riesling and Pinot Noir from the 5.3 ha vineyard in the heart of the Martinborough Terrace growing area. Two new releases are indicative of the original and individual approach taken at Vynfields, the dry Peche de Noire rosé 2013 and ‘Mad Rooster’ 2012, made from an unidentified red variety grown in Martinborough, originally thought to be Syrah, which is bottled as a single varietal wine only by them. www.vyfields.com
