There’s nothing unlucky about vintage number 13 from this tiny vineyard high above the valley floor in Gibbston. It’s a site that keeps on giving in good seasons and bad, delivering elegant wines that have earned a cult following in New Zealand and overseas. The 2020 has all the signature characteristics of the site - an elevated and airy feel with mountain herbs and flowers on the nose and an underlying hint of earth and forest floor. The palate is intensely focussed and is showing a little more tannic structure than normal. Precisely balanced.
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.
