Waipara River Estate 2010 Riesling and Pinot Noir

11-Apr-2013

Waipara River Estate is the boutique vineyard, pastoral farm and B&B accommodation operation of Michael Peters and Tina Besley, based on the former 32 ha Glenmark Wines property, which they purchased in 2007. They have upgraded all aspects of the business and have become fully immersed in the unique aspects of Waipara region, such as the ‘Greening Waipara’ project. The vineyard, planted mainly to Riesling, Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer and Cabernet Sauvignon include some of the original ungrafted vines planted by John McCaskey in the 1980s, these figuring among the oldest in the district. These are in a block called ‘The Original Vineyard’. The viticulture is under the care of Gwyn Williams of Vinecare, supported by Trevor Carson in charge of farm and vineyard operations, and the winemaking is by veteran Kym Rayner of Torlesse. www.waiparariver.com
