Walnut Block 2010 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

11-Dec-2013
Walnut Block is the label of Clyde, Nigel and Helen Sowman whose family established their 17 ha vineyard in the Rapaura sub-region of Marlborough in 1992. The label takes its name after a 100 y.o. walnut tree featuring on the site. Nigel is the viticulturist who has taken the vineyard to BioGro organic certification this year. The contracted winemaker is Gordon Ritchie who crafts the ‘Walnut Block’ and ‘Collectables’ ranges. Here I review the 2010 vintage releases of the ‘Walnut Block’ Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. www.walnutblock.co.nz
