Our second vintage from this distinctive and organically managed vineyard sitting above the village of Bannockburn is a delightful contrast to the silky elegance of the Gibbston wines. Not that there isn’t elegance here, there is, but power and complexity as well with densely layered juicy fruit and fresh acidity. The minimalist winemaking approach is the same for all the wines. Only one “punch down” during fermentation and very low sulphur additions helps to expose the different vineyard and sub regional characters.
The maestro's of NZ wine Alan Brady and Brian Shaw are ready to release their 2020 vintage! The initial barrel tastings with our sommeliers are giving resounding feedback that 2020 is coming through just as powerful and complex as 2019. Next month our team will be tasting again with the Godfather to see how the flavours are coming together pre-bottling. It's our absolute pleasure to be part of this process and excitement levels are high here!
The ongoing success of Wild Irishman is a tribute to its fans like yourselves, Alan is beyond thrilled with how his wine is received... and hopefully he is being persuaded by us to increase production next year so we don't have to sell out so fast again! Last year's demand will drive the bottle price of each wine from 2019 up significantly as soon as the 2020 releases - a testament to the quality of the wine and very encouraging for those purchasing to invest.
Due to strong demand annually, this year we are again offering our Wine Club members exclusive access to ordering Wild Irishman wines.
