Winemaker Frank Manifold is steadily making a name for both himself and for Mount Brown, with the estate Pinot Noir winning a great review in Decanter in 2016.
Their Riesling has citrus aromas and spicy notes on the nose, while the palate shows more ripe tropical fruits that soften the minerality of the wine. Aromatic with a refreshing acidity.
New Zealander white wine from Waipara New Zealand, made with Riesling.
Lying in the foothills of Mount Brown in Waipara Valley this abandoned wine estate was only rediscovered ten years ago and it is something of a success story. Waipara has a greater variation in temperature between night and day than more northerly Marlborough, yields are much lower, and this valley is fast establishing a reputation for quality. Aromatics such as Pinot Gris, and also Pinot Noir, are perfectly suited to Mount Brown’s small sheltered stony site and wine making here is of a very high order. View our selection.
