Tasting: Mount Brown Estate, Waipara, New Zealand

We are pleased to announce that for our July tasting, Catherine Keith from Mount Brown Estates, based in Waipara, New Zealand, will be joining to talk and taste through her range, including a comparison of Sauvignon Blancs, a Pinot Gris, Riesling, and their superb Pinot Noir.

A little about the estate: 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
