Region:  Waipara, North Cantebury

Grape variety:  Pinot Noir

About:  Lying in the foothills of Mount Brown in Waipara Valley, North Canterbury, this abandoned wine estate was rediscovered in 2002 by father and daughter team Tony Rutherford and Catherine Keith 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. Aromatic grape varieties 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.

The Catherine’s Block label is reserved for the very best wines from Mount Brown Vineyards in Waipara, North Canterbury. As well as superb fruit, the wine gains creamy lees notes from being barrel fermented, with wild yeasts, adding a smoky depth and complexity to the wine.

Tasting Notes:    A rich Pinot Noir, with ripe flavours of plum and cherries, interlaced with hints of black pepper spice and complex forest floor aromas. The palate is round and generous with melted tannins. The grapes are taken from specific rows in the vineyard which are subject to more intense viticultural treatment and lower yields; even then only a few barrels made from those rows make it into the range.
